Review of Enemy Planes’ Album by City Pages.
Album: Beta Lowdown
Label: Rock The Cause Records
Grade: A
Hoo boy, Enemy Planes. This record is genuinely something different. In terms of influence, it's tough to place. It's psychedelic, but not in the obvious ways; it has shoegaze elements, but not the usual touchstones like fuzzy guitars and trippy sounds. It's melodic but super mysterious, rockin' but super mellow, avant garde as hell but super listenable.

We're guessing it's that inability to be pigeonholed that won them that Hard Rock Cafe Best Band In The World contest thingy. But those kinds of accolades mean zero without cool records to back them up, and damn straight Beta Lowdown is a cool record.

Jesus, listen to "(O' Ensnared) Swans" to get a hint of what's happening here. It's heavy as hell, but then there's these jingle-jangle guitars, and the singer sort of drags in a weirdly pretty falsetto. Everything sounds intriguingly Lynchian, you know? Nominal hit "Devolver" sort of jangles like an early-'80s REM song. Then it unexpectedly strikes a gothy post-punk melody. Then the whole thing kind of warbles like your favorite Slowdive song.

It's confusing but utterly marvelous stuff, maintaining a truly mysterious and spacey mood throughout. And it can't be really compared to anything else, which is a hell of a thing in 2016, amirite?
