BIG UPS – ” National Park “

An absolute masterpiece of a noise rock album. Big Ups is the only band that has been able to channel the spirit of the legend, Slint, and still be able to develop their own aesthetic and not just rehash “angularity”. I cannot recommend this enough.

This album sounds a little more “grown-up” than their debut LP, “Eighteen Hours Of Static”. I don’t mean that in a negative light in either direction. Their debut was ferocious and heartfelt and those qualities ring true in this release. Before A Million Universes is a bit more reserved sometimes, but in those reservations it also comes off as somewhat dark. Their evolution as musicians definitely shines as well, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Big Ups!
