The Boston trio Victory at Sea make fairly interesting, morose, meandering electric music for the bookworm set—yet in a math-rock style (see odd time signatures) already nailed by Slint a while back. One of the positive aspects of this band is the excellent drumming of Fin Moore (my co-worker compares him to The Who’s Keith Moon), though his complex playing tends to contrast oddly (at times) with the slow and basic guitar arpeggios. Lead singer Mona Elliott (guitar/vocals) stays somewhat restrained in her singing, alternating between monotone and lovely, while her playing can get aggressive. But the best songs here are the lullabye-like moments of quiet beauty. It should be a good live show for fans of darkly contemplative indie music (the group reminds me of a mixture between Low and A Minor Forest).
