EUPHONE The Calendar Of Unlucky Days

The Calendar Of Lucky Days finds the instrumental duo of Ryan Rapsys and Nick Macri adding new dimensions to its already eclectic, loose "post-rock." The pair expands its instrumentation, paying more mind to Euphone's influences and reigning in its typically wide- ranging beat styles. While percussion still plays a key role in the Chicago band's sound (every rhythmic device, from timpani to drum machines are employed here), it's the intricate layering of jazz, rock, dub and funk forms that makes The Calendar... such an engaging listen. The band's cerebral, cross-genre-splicing is best experienced on "Needle And Crate," a song that bristles with cool bass tones and deep, funky keyboards, or on "Wickedness," which is characterized by gurgling keys, stuttering drum machines and new wave-like production effects. For Fans Of Brian Eno.
