The press release for ERAAS’ self-titled new record describes these Brooklynites as a “tribal atmospheric quartet”. If you are like me (and I am certain that every single one of you is), the first question that pops into your mind is: “What do they mean by tribal?” Well apparently by tribal they mean sometimes sounds like early Killing Joke. Do these folks listen to lots of Dead Can Dance? You bet your black eye-liner they do. How about the first couple Godspeed You Black Emperor! records? Yep, they dig those, too. Does ERAAS approach the sophistication, grandeur and songcraft of any of the aforementioned bands Sadly, no. But this is a pretty cool record, anyway, filled with lots of dark, windy atmosphere and plenty of space to breath. ERAAS might want to add a bit more grit and gumption to their musical tapestry—that might just take them to the next level.
