Description

Ithaca – “The Language of Injury” LP

Long awaited full length from this London outfit that are gaining themselves some well deserved global attention. There’s a sense of a band who have outgrown the trappings of the commmercial style of ‘post hardcore’ (Autumn To Ashes, Poison The Well etc) and have absorbed the more cerebral and muscular influences of Botch, Converge, Oathbreaker and Code Orange. What lifts it up and seperates it from the pack is the impressive vocal range of larynx-shredding vocalist Djamila Azzouz (similar to that of Eva Spence of labelmates Rolo Tomassi), ferocious most of the time, but  with clean, distant harmonies that occasionally take it all into a shoegazey-post-rock territory, which are definitely the highlights of the LP. “…absolutely one of the most powerful, interesting post-hardcore acts around today, and on the basis of this record alone, they deserve to be massive.” – The Quietus
