Nallo - "Different"

Minneapolitan ramshackle psych and fuzz outfit Nallo released their debut album this week dubbed Mechano and The Trees, the cover of art of which depicts a robot taking in his final moments amongst the trees after discovering he doesn't fit in with the rest of the world. Nallo's long-player continues the fiery attitude of devastating punch-in-the gut first single "Submarines" with blistering solos that dance along dark banks of dissonance, foot-racing rhythms, and frontman Andrew Ranallo's achey belly-full-of-soul voice. Lead-off track "Different" combines much of what makes this young band so promising: strong-armed fastballs of guitar feedback, storming crashes of cymbal, echoey primal shrieks that recall Thee Oh Sees, and Ranallo's rapid-fire vocal delivery that centers around themes of death and, like Mechano, being just a touch "different."
