Here’s a mention that qualifies for 2009′s best release… i’ve been sitting on it for a little too long, but just the more to ensure that this is a masterpiece durable for long term exposure and health benefits.
Antarctic’s debut was a long process, already anticipated more than a 1Â½ year ago when their music was only available as 4 demo tracks on myspace… and calling them demo tracks immediately set the bar high.
The album is a continuous flow of creative guitar and bass work and firm, lap-tapping delicious, tricky drumming. It crosses borders of genres just the way we like it, but without ever sounding unnatural or pretentious. It’s a joy to go hunting for details in. For instance how almost every of the 9 tracks flow seamlessly together: I’m sure it’s something that they’ve been working a lot with, so I’ll give them an ad hoc pinnacle delicious sound awardÂ® for that.

Hello Sir, 2009
Debut is coming up on really soon on Hello Sir, and without any further information, Antarctic has put the first two tracks, Pasea La Salamandria being a re-recording from their demo. If you liked The Littlest Viking earlier this year (or Fago.Sepia for that matter), you’re going to enjoy this a lot.
Some bands you can check out for your previewing pleasure. They’re in the category of math, and I thought they deserved some attention that I can’t currently give them by reviewing.
