The Locomotive Sound Corporation – The Locomotive Sound Corporation


The Locomotive Sound Corporation – The Locomotive Sound Corporation
Self released – 2011
Rock/Garage
Waardering: ****



The Paris foursome hiding under the moniker The Locomotive Sound Corporation has just released their first EP. The self-titled gem is filled to the rim with mechanical rock that bends like mad without breaking. Again we are treated to a flawless rediscovering of old roots. Think about the new life of emptiness and blues as the White Stripes gave us, but then even more sordid, nasty and frayed. Think about hollow factories filled with Sonic Youth fans who want to feel the lightning in their veins while listening to pure garage. Profound, stirring and ridiculously good. Especially the female voice, which is enchanting, exorcising, manic and raging across the whole; and together with the male vocal-lines, builds up an incredible tension! Whirling!
