Release Date:06/17/2016;Notes:Vinyl LP pressing. Spectres' third album, Utopia is an eight-song offering of gloomy and compelling gothic post-punk. In recent years, the Vancouver five-piece has developed a more nuanced sound. Singer Brian Gustavson pushes his vocals into higher ranges, adding a more dynamic cast to the material the complex guitar lines and melodies are more shimmering and atmospheric Nathan Szilagyi's driving bass provides a firm underpinning. On tracks like "Strange Weather" - originally intended to be the title of their last LP - Mitch Allen's drumming chops shine through brilliantly. Put bluntly, the LP is a magical post-punk masterpiece: while the group's earliest work had a gritty Warsaw/Crisis feel, Utopia is a lush and shimmering document of doomy greatness, firmly in the ballpark of The Sound or early 4AD output. Discover one of the crowning albums of the current post-punk and death rock revival.;Track List:1. New Buildings;2. Strange Weather;3. Vertigo;4. Daniel;5. Figures in the Sand;6. Revisions;7. Crosses and Wreathes;8. 16 Years
