The day has drained you. You come home to more demands upon you. You are barely holding it together. You need something that will banish the outside world; something violent, something cathartic, something explosive yet rejuvenating. So you listen to "Distressor." Sometimes the best remedy for the noise of the world is harnessed, controlled dissonance.
This album is a bombastic form of post-rock like I've never heard before. Guitars seem to be battling phantom demons, the bass thunders mightily like Thor's hammer while the drums are kicking back against the onslaughts of the serial killer, mother earth. The faint vocals assure you that this mammoth sound of fury is on your side so you relax and let it over take up as you turn the volume up a little more pass what your neighbors find acceptable because you know these are the vibes that will wash away the grim of your bad day.
Whirr has managed to create a new form of ecstatic beauty, where static, feedback and muscular riffs and layers can wake the neighbors whilst distressing your soul.
