Silo Halo's Blackout Transmission City Paper review

The Washington City Paper's Joe Warminsky has weighed in on "Blackout Transmission."

Here's a sample:
Silo adept at creating a lonesome rumble. The four songs on Blackout Transmission, Silo Halo's second release on Etxe Records, all expand past the five-minute mark, and they're all studies in the interplay between warehouse-sized reverb, Nathan Jurgenson's ever-active drumming, and dryly melodic human utterances from bassists/guitarists Greg Svitil and Christopher Goett (the label's co-owner) . Very little on Blackout Transmission is delicate, but there is vulnerability underneath it all. Even the sudden percussive breakdown during the title track feels like it's probing an uncertain future.

Thanks, City Paper. Read the full review here.
