|MH-252 Lymbyc Systym - Love Your Abuser
Love Your Abuser, the debut full-length from Arizona’s Lymbyc Systym, is a sprawling post-rock epic. Brothers Jared and Micheal Bell have created an album of ten distinct pieces that capture an emotional range not often seen in instrumental music. From the playful to the sublime, Jared creates the core of Love Your Abuser with layer upon layer of vintage keyboards and effects. Michael’s virtuoso drum work and tasteful programming add the perfect complement to the melodies. The album maintains a consistent sound throughout, yet each composition stands on its own. Without uttering a word, Lymbyc Systym have made one of the most powerful statements in the Mush Records catalog.
|An intensely relaxing experience - Re:Up / The music of now - Scissorkick / So alive and varied that it's easy to forget the band is instrumental - Resonance / Blindingly colorful, lively, and optimistic - Flavorpill / It'll warm your soul - Ion / Fans of Tortoise, Four Tet, and My Bloody Valentine, take note. - XLR8R
|This Tempe, Arizona-based instrumental post-rock band sounds like an electronic Explosions in the Sky, or an American M83 minus vocal samples (reviewers have also compared them to Mum, Tortoise, Stereolab, and Boards of Canada). Brothers Jared and Michael Bell are the core of the group; Jared's vintage keyboards and Michael's forceful, sometimes freeform drumming give the band a unique sound (spiced with a bit of guitar distortion at times, and even horns on "Astrology Days"), despite all those comparisons. Call it laptop with balls. -The Big Takeover
