Album Notes
“Thank God for Aluminum,” the debut EP by local band the D.A., is a true revelation.The quintet has been around in various formations for three years, but only recently have they congealed and stepped things up with regular shows. The four-song disc, recorded at Sonic Ranch Studios with producer Manuel Calderon, shows a band on the cusp of something great. The tracks represent a fine sampling of the D.A.’s weird amalgam of indie rock and New Wave. The danceable “big woman” chugs with propulsive energy in a forward-moving battle between trumpet and drums. “Halfwords Mix,” with its chorus about “bad dreams and dirty sheets,” twangs with Modest Mouse-like melancholy. The remaining songs, the scrappy “Orange and Black” and the busy, pretty “Pheromones,” showcase the band’s well-crafted balance of shimmering synths, squiggling guitars and the occasional, cathartic vocal bark. The EP, so named because recycling cans paid for most of the recording expenses, is that rare entry from a local band with a towering original vision and the talent enough to meet it."
