Album Review: Times New Viking - Dancer Equired!

Thursday 18th August, 2011 9:57AM

Dancer Equired marks album number five for Times New Viking and somewhat surprisingly itís the first time we hear much of a change in direction from the Ohio three-piece. Having made a name for themselves with a class of low-fi bordering on inaudible, it has taken the group up until their most recent LP to be drawn away from garage style tape recordings and into the studio. While some may balk at the disappearance of the hard grit veneer which largely set the tone of the group, only so much can be said with another album of static clad drum beats and distorted vocals. Dancer Equired does expose Times New Viking as less revved up than previous albums, but it at least offers a refreshing listen on what are some good tracks.
