FN430 High Dependency Unit - Memento Mori (2000)
Another Tardis - that is, it's much bigger on the inside looking out - of an EP from HDU sees the Dunedin noisemeisters getting just as creative with the low end of the decibel scale as they usually do with the top. Heck, they even jangle a bit.
That means opening track A Copy of Yourself chimes acoustically and hypnotically before throwing a very big switch. The second, Amino, is swathed in translucent delay-effects guitar, helping make for space rock you can almost dance to.
Meanwhile the two instrumentals of the four-tracks head for the band's usual thrilling, noisy orbits, the closing Further starting off pleasantly ambient before a guitar enters sounding like Hendrix reworking the theme from Close Encounters of the Third Kind - Russell Baillie 4/5 - NZ Herald
