ROM

Foot Signal AlbumPurchased

The New York and Miami based duo ROM deliver this LP with twelve wildly energetic instrumental pieces. On "Foot Signal", we hear Roberto Carlos Lange's and Matt Crum's results of year-long sessions with broken instruments and tape machines. Despite having been recorded over the span of three years, and in various locations in different cities, ROM’s “Foot Signal” effort is an entirely cohesive sonic outing. That they used mostly broken instruments throughout the process only reinforces that soundscape they sought to create. That they played them even with their feet as the title reveals gives us a slight visual hint at the anarchy of the sessions. Could they have used an organ that stayed in tune? Probably. But taping its keys down and pressing record in hopes to document something at all usable is part of the random fabric that makes ROM’s music so incredibly transcendent.
