Brooklynites Geese are the latest to break through via the current post-punk bottleneck, and true to the genre’s staples, debut album ‘Projector’ is overflowing with obtuse, angular oddities. ‘Low Era’ and ‘Exploding House’ show their wares off suitably, both full of the types of stabbing rhythms and twisted riffs that helped the style make a name for itself back in the day. And unlike some of their more rigid peers (of which, notably there are currently many), the five-piece are at least unafraid to break away from the fold. ‘Rain Dance’ and ‘Disco’ inject a healthy dose of weirdness to proceedings, taking the group away from the strait-laced towards a strange, jangly krautrock paradise. And by letting their hair down during these moments, Geese manage to add interesting new wrinkles to their sound, suggesting that, in time, the post-punk rulebook could yet be ripped up all over again.
