Descolada: Descolada

"Descolada plays loud, thrashy, experimental, melodic music."

A valid statement. Demonstrating competent musicianship, the east coast quartet has all the verve of an angst-driven young band cultivating its own voice. Some songs showcase guitarist David Lynch's lupine death growls ("Maniac," "Lucker," "Can't We"), some are led by violinist Meg Mulhearn's lightly husky vocals (the fact that only half the tracks here have vocals should further polarize). The uptempo songs are the shorter ones (in the two-to-three-minute range) "Can't We" and "Concept" are even shorter and resemble sketches, jams. "A Scar Is Born" surprises with its piano, spaced guitar notes and overall intimacy, a rarity on this debut. All throughout, Mulhearn's bowing succeeds as an important textural facet. Her delicate plucking opens "Can't We," shattered like a teacup by the stony assault of Lynch's gritty chordings. "Slow Kitten" is one of the better instrumentals with its Tool-esque melancholic brooding at an 11 on a 10 scale. "Dancing On My Grave" echoes a strangely shoegazer'd Leger de Main, if such a thing is possible. Barely exceeding one half-hour, Descolada manifests as a sophisticated rock curio.
