"Isis and Aerogramme rely on simple beauty, instead of bombastic power." (

" Both Aerogramme and Isis sacrifice some of their patented call signs in an effort to meet at the common ground both bands share. Isis shelf the carpet bombing kick drums and abrasive riffing, while Aerogramme minimize their gentle/violent dynamic and abandon their usual embrace of the pop song form. What is left is a spacious, delicate experiment in ambient rock soundscaping. In the Fishtank 14 is clearly the work of signature artists making a conscious effort to be out of character. On album opener “Lowtide,” lonesome vocals wade amongst buoyant bass lines and tolling single note guitars. Subtle wind chime samples fill in a few in a few gaps, but this song is meant to be a sparse, wide-open piece; where new rhythms and melody are introduced gradually. “Delial” is as close to business as usual, as this EP gets. This song could easily find a nook in Isis’s benchmark “Oceanic”. The centerpiece surges with the ponderous, cycling riffs quite typical of Isis and even climaxes with a gutteral and distorted Aaron Turner scream. Teetering between melancholy and cinematic, “Stolen” is a fitting, if drawn out conclusion. Subdued guitars glide from a keening hum to buzzing drone, eventually finding purchase on hollow, echoing drums. The woe stricken croon of Aereogramme's Craig B adds a touch of human despair to an already sad sounding mood piece. Generously spaced hand claps and muffled kick drums eventually lead to a quavering music box melody that concludes both the song and the EP”. (Read More:
