    [engl] The fourth release from this Chicago band, MOCK is a masterpiece of dark, raucous, noise rock. Oozing with soul, crackling with danger, MOCK churns along in blown-out glory, spiraling downward like a party on the last night on Earth. Moments evoke Nirvana's sweet, melodic annihilation; moments evoke the unhinged twang of Lollipop or Cows. Frontman Jason Sipe holds court with a formidable voice – a mix of power and pain, confidence and vulnerability, he commands attention with every holler and howl. On the album's two ballads, "Drag the River" and "Worn Out Party," he slays with a haunted croon that recalls Elliott Smith. "It’s just a collection of feelings," states Sipe. "I guess it’s my way of communicating with whoever might hear our music and my way of documenting and publicly expressing who I am and the way I feel at this point in my life.” In the words of No Echo: "The group's classic Sub Pop meets AmRep noise rock has built up into a lean and mean beast of an operation.” MOCK was mixed by Mike Lust at Electrical Audio and Phantom Manner. The cover art was created by Allison Schild. Drummer Brian Wnukowski is also known as a founding (and current) member of old-school Chicago noise rockers Big'n.
