4 stars Mogwai meets Aphex Twin? A homogenous mixture of post-rock and electronic music. The bands sound jumped out to me immediately; there aren't too many post-rock bands that trancend the generalities of the genre. With One Time for All Time, 65daysofstatic firmly establishes themselves as an important factor in the post-rock movement. As opposed to a large majority of the expermiental/post-rock bands, this band opts for short songs (not one reaching six-minutes) and fast tempos. The songs generally start off with a steady rhythm, mildly effected guitars, and often keys, and without much of a build, you will be launched into a paroxysm of manic electronic drum beats and crushing guitars. This tactic is both fresh and powerful. These guys can pound five times as many climaxes as Godspeed You! Black Emperor in a given time space, and almost give you equal satisfaction. Certainly, this material lacks the epic crown that the aforementioned has encompassed, but if you're in a time crunch, or you just want to get pumped, you can rely on 65daysofstatic to give you a good fix of high-energy post-rock that will make you convulse with the rhythm. I would hesitate to use it for dancing though - the result would be more like a seizure. Unfortunately, a couple of the songs suffer from lackadaisical writing, leaving them seemingly as fragments of what could be a more complete whole. Even those pieces are enjoyable, they just don't have as much lasting power. All in all, this album points to a bright future; I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next. One Time for All Time is recommended to fans of experimental, post-rock and electronica alike. There is much to enjoy here.
