Fugazi, Instrument Soundtrack
Label: Dischord Records

This is the pseudo soundtrack to the documentary of the same name made by the band with long-time ally Jem Cohen, who has made films with R.E.M. and the late Vic Chesnutt. There’s nothing hugely revelatory, but it’s a cool snapshot of the band’s working process. Only “Rend It” appears as a Guy-with-acoustic-guitar demo. Most of the record is the sound of songs coming together link by link and yard by yard, assembled,… read more »

Better than your Fugazi

Warning: I'm not a big Fugazi fan. But I am a fan of sparse instrumental rock. And this is as good as it gets. Moody and deep. There are a few cuts with vocals: Me & Thumbelina; Little Debbie; I'm So Tired; and Rend It. Download the whole thing. But if you are like me, you may skip these.

if you havent seen instrument the film, GET IT!!! netflix has it, or buy it from dischord. if you're a fugazi fan you wont be disappointed. ESPECIALLY if you like this album.

Softer Edges

Lopside

As a young man, I grew up with 'Kill Taker,' and was therefore somewhat perplexed by this album. Like most everything else Fugazi has done over the years, I grew to love it. It's a much softer and cleaner sound than nearly all their other work, and the instrumental focus leaves lots of room for the band's hard-won technical virtuosity to shine. Fugazi at their most accessible.

They Say All Music Guide

Fugazi finally released a career retrospective after more than a decade together, though in true indie fashion, Instrument is far from your average band’s greatest-hits collection. In truth, it’s the soundtrack to a documentary produced by the band with filmmaker Jem Cohen. While the film contains footage from live dates, studio work, and intimate home-movie tapes, the soundtrack itself focuses on unreleased studio tracks and outtakes with never-before-heard songs, including “I’m So Tired,” “Swingset,” “Slo Crostick,” and “Turkish Disco.” – John Bush
