Description:

“Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?” is an experimental, creative rock album that aptly balances variance in sounds between songs with coherence as a unified record. The songs combine a variety of instruments from synth to electric guitar to what sounds like a marimba, blending influences from 60’s rock, synth pop, and even a bit of folk at times. I very much appreciate how the band incorporates all of these sounds into a consistent style. Interludes like the instrumental “Greenpoint Gothic” and the eerily down-pitched “Detournement” add even more intrigue to the project, creating ambiance to surround the more lyrically-focused songs. This album is definitely something that should be listened to all at once; the individual songs are good, but they are best when complimenting each other. Overall, “Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?” is a unique, well-crafted listen.
