"Like any band worth paying attention to, New York trio Silk Flowers has been constantly shifting since they started. Beginning with a raw, punk-informed foundation to their damaged synth-pop leanings, each subsequent release saw the band shedding skin, bounding from reverb-heavy four-track hiss to disjointed murky instrumental sprawl, and most recently upping production to almost club-worthy standards. Days Of Arrest strays from the glossy veneer of their last full length and finds a much colder, hyper-focused territory than all previous work. The raw jaggedness that has been consistent throughout the band's history is refined into brittle columns, the sound of repetition and confinement. Instead of the rawness one could associate with the needle dropping on a scuffed punk 7", instead we're hearing the dull ache of raw nerves." Includes mp3 download card.
