about

"There are equal parts mechanized, shiny space age marvel on Remora’s Mecha to accompany the twisted, burning wreckage it suggests.
What exactly does that mean?
It means that the opening track, “March” beeps and drones while supporting a menacing bounce as though your joystick controlled star fighter is limping toward the game’s final encounter; the next track, “Nevada Smith” is just as grim, a personal suicide mission with a vaguely western feeling. Known primarily through their fifteen year career as a guitar noise and experimental band, Remora transforms into something much different on Mecha. It’s a more computer-like skin than whole man. In some places the vocals are downright shudder worthy from best friend killing on “WW III” to bleak resolve on “Lilly” giving the sum air of a world without feeling.
A world that perhaps only a robot could envision.
It has been my lasting impression that any Remora recording is a unique, mind-changing listen that is best considered with the context of their entire catalog in mind (it’s hard to imagine that this is the same band that produced Ambient Drones For One Guitar or 1998’s Amerse). The soundscape or whole song-based Mecha does little to dissuade me of that. It is a strong, unique twist on their futuristic sound but somewhat limited without the companion context of their other work. I say, dive into all of it."
