4 stars Ahleuchatistas, a quirky power trio from Asheville, slaps you right in the face with "What You Will" and I'm not kidding you, just look at the album cover!

The trio, founding their musical roots with post-rock, jazz improv and punk, delivers hosrt bursts of energy disguised with nonsense and funny titles ("I Used To Be Just Like You, But Now I Am Just Like Me", "Maybe Orange") but this disguise, this zany mask of sorts covers challenging compositions, mainly shifting between rock and jazzy improvisation and fueling it with punkish energy. Musicianship is high and the dissonance that is created by the three instruments can be somewhat abrassive yet incredibly catchy, like in "Sherman's March", "Unfolding" and "Shell in Ogoniland".

Post-Rock is also a main influence for the band and atmospheric passages, based around Perlowin's playing, or tension builds with explosive breakouts can be listened in "Remember Rumsfeld At Abu Ghraib", "Sometimes there's a Buggy" and "Before the Law".

Definitively an excelent album for those fond of the more proggier side of THE CARDIACS, KING CRIMSON and perhaps the heavier side of post-rock like DON CABALLERO and RUSSIAN CIRCLES.

4.5 really!
