There aren’t many records being made right now that sound like Amp’s Stenorette. In 1998, there were quite a few, which is why this one mostly went unnoticed when it was released. Blending trip-hop beats, dream pop ethereality, shoegaze density and a slight touch of gothic 4AD melancholy, Bristol’s Amp reflected a good 15 years or so of underground British music in one gorgeous, unique package. It’s a gorgeous swirl of sound, a sensory experience that shows off not only the band’s vast array of influences, but also their ability to stitch them together in such a mesmerizing, fluid manner. It’s an album whose charms creep up on you. It’s rarely conventionally catchy, but it’ll certainly put you in a trance. – JT

Amp is an electronic post rock band formed by Richard F. Walker (aka Richard Amp) in 1992, after a 2 year hiatus Amp
resurfaced with French vocalist Karine Charff, and a succession of floating collaborators.
MC Strong: "Occupying musical territory somewhere between shoegazing and the Bristol 'Trip Hop' sound, AMP had created a work of sweeping soundscapes, echoing ambience and waves of feedback."...more
