09/13/2003: "erase errata rules ok"

Saw Erase Errata last night -- SF-based female quartet that critics keep throwing words like 'jittery post-punk' and 'no-wave' around, though I think Erase Errata are just being themselves and probably think such labels are funny. But I can see a connection between, say, the tightly coiled ball of nervous energy in Contortions' 'Dish it Out' and Erase Errata's shtick, which is all agitated and nervy, mid-range and trebly, with a propulsive rhythm section commanding your to feet to move though you're not sure you want to etc. But Contortions &co. were firmly in boy territory and there's something so feminine about EE, not just that they're female; feminine doesn't just mean softness and ribbons 'n shit but it's something graceful too (friend reminiscing about Ikue Mori in DNA: 'there was something about her, she was just so elegant)...I wish EE's singer would sing more; she's got a ravishing voice when she uses it, all nourishing and full-bodied with lovely surging Lora Logic vibrato (plus trumpets!) and all, but she tends to spit her lyrics instead, which is cool 'cuz that's her style ok? But I want to see their style go through some more variation in tempo, rhythm, arrangements, vocals. Because they're musically capable of more sonic experimentation, and if they can do it, why not try it? The brief respites between songs were funny and pretty as well: after shredding through a two-minute song, all spits and screams and shards and stops, the lead singer says shyly in gorgeous raspy alto: 'Thanks for seeing us tonight', before launching furiously into the next impossibly loud number. What a band.

did you see k sanneh's review of the show? more and more i am convinced that he just has lousy taste (see also: his constant championing of lousy emo-boy bands, which really is the #1 way for a male rock crit to discredit himself at the present time)
