"The exploded view, deadpan pop of Model 91 marks the recorded debut of the Brooklyn, NY duo Christmas Decorations. Using vocals, guitar, bass guitar, low budget digital sequencers, and melodica Christmas Decorations recorded Model 91 in Spring 2002. The band have started to call their music 'ambient punk' and point to modern electronic composers like Gert-Jans Prins, Carsten Nicolai (Alva Noto) and Wolfgang Voigt (Gas, M:15) and abrasive minimalists The Shadow Ring as inspirations as well as older referents like Ike Yard and Desmond Simmons' Alone on Penguin Island album. The 13 tracks veer from claustrophobic to expansive and can be choppy or mesmerizing. Christmas Decorations take a succinct, direct approach to song structure and instrumentation while experimenting with mood and melody."
