Montreal post-punk power-noise trio Black Feelings focuses its energy on establishing and expanding a sense of volume, both sound and space, in their music. At this point at least, they're little concerned with variation in melody and tone. Drummer-vocalist Owain Lawson's voice lacks character other than he's held at a distance in the mix. Guitarist-keyboardist Kyle Fostner's contributions peek out from the highest peaks of the range, while bassist Brian Mitchell owns the only clear frequency. With a little more nuance and separation more listeners may gravitate to this gravitas, and place Black Feelings in rank with Sons of Freedom, sianspheric and Halifax's own on-hiatus roomdoom.
