Se­quence 7/10

UNCUT - - New Albums - Jon DALe

Drums and voices, noth­ing more, noth­ing less

For their sec­ond al­bum, Rat­tle, the duo of Katharine Eira Brown and Theresa Wrigley, dou­ble down on the in­ten­sive fo­cus of their self-ti­tled 2016 de­but. Work­ing with the sim­plest of kits – just drums and vo­cals – the four long songs on Se­quence do their bid­ding via cu­mu­la­tive im­pact: “DJ” locks into a multi-limbed, hydra rhythm that’s joy­ously un­re­lent­ing; “The Rocks” floats on seas of cym­bals. Parts of the al­bum re­call OOIOO, New York nowa­vers Pul­sal­lama, or The Rain­coats circa Mov­ing, but there’s a wel­come fresh­ness to Se­quence; it may be smartly, deftly con­structed, but it feels free and open.
