Roman Numerals
Roman Numerals
— Roman Numerals forms a sturdy bridge between indie-rock's angular approach and the underground club scene's throbbing tempos. This high-powered hybrid could inspire even the most jaded observers to uncross their arms. While math-rock intimidates fun-lovers with its off-putting inaccessibility and dance-pop repels substance-seekers with its frilly frivolity, Roman Numeralsmeets in the middle, crafting instrumentally interesting material with savagely catchy appeal.

— Much as sculptors start with a cold stone square and chip away everything that doesn't resemble their intended objects, Roman Numeralsbegan by eliminating elements. Jettisoned were the morose melodies and murky moods that marked the post-punk tribute project that brought its members together. Gone were the erratic jackhammer rhythms, psychedelic sludge and haunted-factory industrial clatter that characterized its contributors' previous projects Season to Risk, Shiner and Dirtnap. What remains is invigoratingly unique, with ringing guitar salvos that jostle listeners like violent waves, placid keyboards that whisper like the receding tide and drums that demand a dance response without resorting to an overeager death-disco cadence. I. IV. II. III.
