Forming in 2008, they released a self-titled EP three years later, and are just now putting out their first full length with Tracts. But Equals? music, though sincere and evocative, isn?t weighted with heavy drama or contemplation. Nor does it go for distance: their longest recorded song doesn?t even break the six-minute mark. In fact, more than their Texas peers, Equals have a bit more in common with a band like Gainesville, Florida?s the Mercury Program, who have significantly slowed down after a flurry of activity in the early ?00s, releasing only one album (Chez Viking in 2009) in the past decade.
?Telefoto? and ?Sweat House? in particular share the brisk rolling drums and circling guitar figures of vintage Mercury Program, though Equals don?t retrace their steps as often over the course of their progressive structures, and are also quicker to stomp on their pedals. Indeed, they don?t waste much time doing so on many of the songs on Tracts, but the soaring high notes and drummer Matt Toman?s athletic pounding are often tempered by brevity and balance with less familiar elements. Equals utilize the traditional well ? guitarists Dylan Storey and Simon McDonald, and bassist Alex Guzman, play off of one another well through the many bright bursts and the less frequent quiet spells ? but keyboardist Logan Wexler and Toman?s use of synthesizers and samplers add hues to the palette. This is most pronounced on the tracks ?Conveyor? (which opens the album with, of all things, hand claps) and ?Slab Avalanche,? which hopefully point the way toward further such experimenting on their next album, whenever that may come.
