Chicago’s own young guns, BIG’N have earned a reputation as the noise rocker’s dream. Dare I say it, « Trophy » starts out like an angrier version of Slint and Midwestern inclinations run amok on this record (Shellac, Dazzling Killmen, the whole of the Louisville scene and even a dash of Tortoise added to the guitar in songs like « El Diablo III »). More embittered, dark and less ideological than the rest of their influences, lyrical content runs the gamut of depression; cursed love, the burden of life, parental preachings and of course, the inevitable deathwish.
This oppressive feeling works quite well with the scorching vocals and stop/start guitar antics. The result is a finely tuned, passionate angst which is eminent even in the quieter moments. You can picture the live performance simultaneously: lunging forward like caged animals and sweating their soul all over their razor sharp guitar strings and splintered drumsticks. This is music to break your soul.
