How Is It?
If you are an angular music fanatic like I am, 30,000 Feet Tarantella is the sort of instrumental release you have been waiting for. 30,000 Feet Tarantella is an album that shows a fascination for flight, and in addition to sparingly used spoken word pieces, airport sounds are cleverly scattered throughout the albums eleven songs. Although angular math-rock riffs and free form drumming dominate most of the album, there are a few instances where piano and glockenspiel are used to create a truly enthralling instrumental release that seemed to be unfortunately overlooked in 2006. This is a must listen for any fan of angular music and if tracks like “Suite for Bancomat” are any indication, Diane And The Shell will not be overlooked for much longer.
