BAD NEWS BIBLE – BINEWSKI
CY002 // EP // 24-MRCH-2009
Binewski smash abrasive dirge rock & eighties dregs with electronica and ambient soundscapes, confusing heavy guitars with synthesisers and dirty pop harmonies with the tortured wailings of a damp-cellar Casanova.
A quarter of an hour of well produced concept pop rock, colourful modern pop rock that pokes sticks at My Chemical Romance, that bites down to the bones of Enter Shikari – far better than both actually and you sir, give me a shilling if you are willing… No, scratch those reference points and those way off-target name drops, Binewski’s modern sounding pop rock concert sounds nothing like Enter My Chemical anything and if you listen very closely there’s bits of all kinds of things and they, whoever they are, sound like no one you could easily put a bruised index finger on – bits of Killing Joke, touches of neo-prog stitching things together, atmospheres, toes dipped in different musical waters…. Good ideas, no modest dreams to shatter here, well worth checking out and keeping a spare eye on.
