"Review: You Can Does Not Mean You Should"

‘4/4 is for first pumpers. I’m in the zone of 7/8’ crows front man and collaborator Pause on the definitive sound of !PAUS3. You Can Does Not Mean You Should is the new release from the NY producer, which now includes the recent addition of female vocalist Alice. This album – for the most part – is built as a collaborative rush. The synth punk explosion of Call It a Life and Black End Eyes mimic a state similar to what Crystal Castles is producing now; sharp distortion, pulsating tempos and techno guitar mash up. Terror offers a halo of male vocal weaved through a stockade of crashing symbols and crunching noise-rock guitar in what reminds us of early Unkle trends, and more recently, the sounds of LA noise-rockers Health. But this synth punk trend doesn’t not envelope the entire album. The most honest and stripped back sound can be heard in the cover of Bangles 1988’s Eternal Flame, featuring the (momentarily) softer vocals of Alice and accompanying bass. Hearing her vocals played out in a more garage-rock context could also be another intriguing vocal arrangement in between the softer numbers.

The direction of !PAUS3 is solely dependent on who they chose to work with in future. This is not an album which defines who they are (or who they will be) by any means. Their musical scope has the potential to follow a collaborative path similar to what Unkle has been doing for the last few years. Because of this You Can Does Not Mean You Should could almost be a teaser album until their bigger catalogue is grown and their collaborations are streamlined. In the meantime, let’s endorse the non-fist pumping 7/8. - More Than Disco

Call it a collaborative effort. Call it a collective. Call it noise-dance-synth-dub-step-off=a-roof-into-traffic beats. Just do not attempt to label !PAUS3 and their members to their face. Located in the New York City area, the line-up hails from as far as the USSR and as close as California. “We’ve never felt it was very important to discuss our birth cities or birth dates, especially because we’re older than we look,” states pause, the 20-something year old talking head of the group. Refusing to be defined by a genre or label, their latest release on Projecting Nothing, You Can Does Not Mean You Should includes traditional trance, psychedelic rock, noise, synth-pop and just about anything you can imagine in between. Their previous success as in demand remix artists and DJs will continue in between support of their new original release on June 23rd, 2011. !PAUS3 released Silence Please on Projecting Nothing in 2010 and has remixed artists as eclectic as The Bangles, Lost Shadow, ClipdBeaks and Shallow Sense.
