Jakob - Sines (LP) -NEW-


Image of Jakob - Sines (LP) -NEW-

It’s been almost a decade since cult Kiwi post-rockers Jakob released an album, but the time away has done nothing to diminish their collective power. Sines is an immense, elemental record, full of ominous percussion, crackling bass, and billowing guitar lines that conjure images of gathering storms and rough seas. The sound Jakob creates is dense and textured, and new listeners may be surprised to discover that the band is a simple guitar/bass/drums trio, albeit one that uses a lot of effects pedals. Additional instruments are employed sparingly but to great effect: the piano notes on “Darkness” sound like they’re suspended in mid air, while the strings on the cacophonous “Harmonia” may break your heart.
