The largest mustache of the world, the gentleman that ate glasses and all kinds of metals, the lady with the record of breastfeeding, the girl that runs 100m hurdles against scuba divers…
Sounds like nonsense records, but they are examples of overcoming that make us feel free. The music of IEPI has a lot of that. How can they play so quick, powerful and in such an aggressive way? That is the question people keep asking themselves after years of watching their live shows.
“New WR” is recorded live. All at once. Without tricks. Not many records are still recorded like that in 2014. Only a band that believes in themselves and technically flawless can do it.
The result is 8 songs of overwhelming math-rock, continuous changes of pace and melodies that end up sticking in your head. Without knowing how, when you listen again to “Verónica Torr” or “Stefan Raab“, you smile and start enjoying, stepping your right feet and hitting the table with your forefinger.
It sounds stupid again, but that’s the way it is. And we like it.
