Vices & Virtues
This double-EP, Vices & Virtues, is a record of the efforts of an unknown Portland, Oregon band called I Disagree. Alternately heavy and groovy, the band laces elements of prog over a core of infectious grooves. The black-and-white packaging is hypnotic and origami-like. Once you remove the two discs, it unfolds into a single giant poster-sized sheet complete with all lyrics. It is mesmerizing. The two discs, titled 'Vices' and 'Virtues,' are each about 30 minutes and together tell of the frustration and exuberance with both life and death. We ask you to give us a listen.
