the more rockin Full On Night


The version of Full On Night here is much heavier and rockin' than the version on Handwriting, and equally as good if not better. The Matmos deconstruction is creepy, very creepy... it once came on the stereo while I was asleep, which was bad news. But if you're going to buy Rachel's albums, you should buy the actual records or cds, they put some time and work into their incredible artwork.

They Say All Music Guide

Though not as consistent as the band’s full-length LPs, this two-song, 30-minute EP provides insight into the subtle complexities of Rachel’s’ sound. The first track is a new recording of the song “Full on Night,” which originally appeared on the band’s debut album, Handwriting. Here, though, the song is almost completely reinvented, with the group’s trademark chamber music maturity eventually giving way to daring experimentalism, finally morphing into a grinding noise rock riff you’d never expect from a group with a concert pianist and two violinists. The second track, “The Precise Temperature of Darkness,” finds experimental electronic duo Matmos deconstructing the song even further, blending studio and live performances of the tune with a variety of esoteric samples to create an otherworldly pastiche of sounds totally unrecognizable from the first track. Too weird for newcomers, this EP is recommended for diehard Rachel’s fans only. – Bret Love
