“Featuring members of Norwegian acts Syme, Stereo 21, and the Low Frequency in Stereo, the Megaphonic Thrift have only been around long enough to release a lone 7” single, but the streams at their MySpace page are enough to make you prick up your ears. The name is a Guided by Voices reference, but the Thrift jam like early Geffen-era Sonic Youth, which means lots of low vocals, punchy drums, and headlong tempos. On “Neues” especially, they set up a perfectly tuneful song, then carefully unravel it strand by melodic strand– all in about four minutes. The result is a surge of scribbly, dissonant guitars, propelled by a percussive bass line and drumbeat that punishes the hi-hat and cymbals.”

”The Megaphonic Thrift manages to create a perfect balance between guitar noise and the warm colours of the lead singer’s voice”
