3 stars This unpronounceable EP from Cloudkicker, ]]][[[ (shall we call it "Inverted Brackets?"), begins with easygoing drums, slightly toasted guitar, and a steady bass underneath on "#" ("Pound sign" or, in this day and age, "Hashtag"). It has an uplifting feeling that gives way to a sleepy, sadder passage. But wake up- a frenzied onslaught is around the corner. After the first track dries up, the odd rhythms of "%" ("Percent") pounce upon the hearer, producing a rising, post-rock wash. The third and final track, "$" ("Dollar") is the most intense, with a pummeling salvo of guitars and drums. It eventually settles into a more relaxing post-rock fashion. The final moments return to blistering turmoil. For a few morsels of Cloudkicker, ]]][[[ is a fine place to turn.
