The Electra Complex – S/T

The Electra Complex, the psychological term for the reversal of the familiar Oedipal Complex, is spelled out dramatically by the cinematic sample incorporated into the eponymous bands’ lead track on their debut self titled EP. The Edmonton based group of precocious young talents know how to balance their hardcore influences with their post-rock tendencies to nail down five killer jams that demonstrate their potential and forward thinking sensibilities. The raw energy of their recordings can’t be faked or go without mention. Definitely looking forward to hearing them live. I’ll finish this plug with the only sample the record is really missing, the timeless words of the Notorious B.I.G.: “I love it when you call me big papa!”
