Review: Ribe is a relatively new name, with just one prior release to his credit. However, listening to Acute, it is clear that his sound is very mature. The title track is based on pounding kicks, metal plated percussion and in the background the shrill shriek of a bomber delivering its payload. In contrast to this studied, almost detached approach is "Atop". Centered on a dense, stepping rhythm, the arrangement plays host to a layered, grungy riff that sounds like it summoned from the depths of Hades. Effortlessly demonstrating two very different styles, there is no doubt that we'll be hearing more from Ribe soon.
