#407: Githead - Waiting For A Sign

When Githead appeared in 2004, many doubted the band’s longevity. Mainly due to the the fact that their formation was part of their label’s ten year anniversary celebrations, but also down to the eclectic nature of the line-up, which features members of Wire, Scanner and Minimal Compact. Indeed, incorporating the influence and aesthetics of such a diverse handful of musicians might well yield something off-kilter and more experimental than most listeners could stomach, but the fact remains that, ten years on from their inception, Githead have managed to hone their sound to a razor, crafting nine tracks of sleek, slightly experimental, ambience on this their fourth LP.
