Ultra Milkmaids - Pocket Station
With this release, Ultra Milkmaids return to guitar-oriented roots they originally started with in 1993 but now there is the addition of the experimental sound modifications from the 'Peps' days. The new CD is a logical sequel to their last album "Pop Pressing". The band itself classifies their sound as 'hypnotic and melodic rock'n'roll' (?) - Sure the instrumentation could be used by a 'rock-and-roll-band': acoustic drums, electric guitars & bass. However, the use of sampler and moog system stops any comparisons to the rock genre. What we have here is a truly fine mixture of post 80's experimental rock (in all its varieties) - augmented with the sound ingredients the milkies are well-known for. "Less Dreams" with its long sallow synth line followed by psychedelic backwards-guitars and irritating clicks is a perfect example of U.M.'s ability to mold 'unreasonable' styles into one. There is always a surprising continuation within their songs - "My Star" could be a Velvet Under
cover, but in the end the synth takes over.
