The cover of Geese’s upcoming 3D Country features a splayed cowboy face down in a Western Americana hellscape. It’s a surprising image given the Brooklyn band’s gritty post-punk angularity. Yet 3D Country doesn’t sound much like the Geese of before. Vocalist Cameron Winter describes the change as one from “teenage angst” to “twenty-something arrogance”, and I believe him.

Opening track 2122 is confident classic rock, whilst 3D Country throws innocuous country and gospel into the mix. Much like their contemporaries, the album seems to verge on a kind of maximalist orchestral rock thing (as evidenced on Tomorrow’s Crusades). The result is mixed and fans may be disappointed. I applaud Geese for their ambition but to me, the album feels manically miscellaneous – perhaps a victim of their self-proclaimed “arrogance”.
