Upward Heroic Motive on CD

Roue' has been sonically seducing Cleveland for the past several years with their blend of hard hitting spaceindie splatter music. After recording a self - released EP Roue' went through a slight line - up change adding Steve Melhman (of Pere Ubu/Rocket From the Tombs fame) to the mix. Roue' has now redefined their sound with a rock solid bottom, guitars that blow your head off and vocals out of left field. The band released their debut album with Exit Stencil Recordings May 10th. 'Score 4/5. Who: the best band we've heard from Cleveland since---well, in a really long time. Sounds like: fractured post-punk that channels the noisy gap between Thurston Moore and Kevin Shields. How is it?: If Upward Heroic Motive is the soundtrack to a nervous breakdown (and it very well could be), rip off the knob and pass us a straightjacket. Rocks like: The Fall. Television. My Bloody Valentine.' -Alternative Press 'Upward Heroic Motive is an unexpected treat. Reminiscent of '90s post-punk icons Drive Like Jehu minus the math, Roué are relentless in assailing their instruments and your ears in turn. Borrowing tricks from '90s hardcore and post-punk, along with occasional straight-up rock riffs, the Cleveland, Ohio quartet creates an atomically charged and wholly unstable brand of rock.' -Splendid e-Zine ' Lead singer Justin Coulter at times sounds like Television era Richard Hell . . .The rhythm section is a freight train at full - throttle . . . blends indie, feedback - based drone, with smatterings of right coast hard core. The Upward Heroic Motive is a surprisingly polished debut. Once you board the train, there's no getting off until the end of the line.' - UDC Advocate ' Roue's sound comes with lacerating guitars and even sharper wit. ' - Cleveland Scene.
