Esordio omonimo per la band di Brescia che svela i propri bellicosi intenti disegnando traiettorie oblique sulla superficie math-noise. E' risaputo che solitamente la matematica non è un'opinione, ma gli Aucan riescono a rimescolare con maestria le carte in gioco: riff tiratissimi, stacchi potenti, drumming percussivo et similia sono tipicamente le chiavi di volta di un genere che in queste undici tracce sembra essere rivitalizzato da una nuova linfa. Registrati benissimo, con Giovanni Ferliga alla console e Giulio Favero al mastering, ad un primo ascolto ho avuto la sensazione di trovarmi davanti ai Trans Am più emotivi e selvaggi di The Surveillance. In realtà i rimandi sarebbero infiniti (con puntuale riferimento alla galassia del post-math-rock) e non sarebbe una bestemmia in chiesa dire che il lavoro in questione non si distacca qualitativamente poi di molto da quelli di più blasonati predecessori che rispondono ai nomi di Don Caballero, Dianogah etc. Attendiamo trepidamente di vederli dal vivo per poterli ammirare al pieno delle loro potenzialità e scevri da ogni sovrastruttura “da studio”.

04-Sep-2008 11:53 AM - Aucan - s/t (11 tx cd, 45',37'' - Africantape / Ruminance '08) - Self-titled debut release, from Brescia, northern Italy, - They highlight their warlike intentions, drawing oblique lines on a math-noise plan. Everybody knows that usually mathematics is not an opinion, but Aucan know how to shuffle the cards artfully at play: fast riffs, powerful breaks, percussive drumming and so on, - i mean, it's the typical attitude and rules of a music genre that here looks like revitalized along these eleven tracks. Excellent production, recorded by Giovanni Ferliga behind the console and Giulio Favero at mastering; - since the first listen i felt like i was in front of Trans Am's wildness and pathos of The Surveillance. Frankly, i could keep on citing an endless amount of other bands (although strictly in the post-math-rock galaxy), and it wouldn't sound like swearing in a church if i said that this release is anyway on a similar quality level with the other well known members of the nobility, like Don Caballero, Dianogah etc. Let's wait and see, - i long to see them performing live, away from any studio/production amenity.
