    Portland’s Arctic Flowers with their long-awaited second LP! After last year’s excellent "Procession" EP, an EP that showcased the Flowers’ talent for combining the tradition of anarcho/peace punk with a postpunk sensibility, the new "Weaver" LP continues in much the same vein. The first side kicks off with the energetic track "Magdalene" and the pace doesn’t let up too much from there, culminating in the barnstorming track "Anamnesis", which employs a riff that reminds me of a Rudimentary Peni track (specifically, "The Evil Clergyman" off RP's "Cacophony"). But it's Side 2 that contains my favorite tracks off this new release. The second side kicks off with the memorable track “Byzantine”, guitarist Stan Wright lays down a chunky, Killing Joke-esque riff (think of that band’s song "Tension" mixed with "The Wait"), complemented by frontwoman Alex's vocals, which recall the classic goth-punk of bands like Rubella Ballet and Lost Cherrees. The following title track, "Weaver" is another winner – just a great mid-tempo punk rocker that, in true Arctic Flowers fashion, blurs the boundaries between classic punk, postpunk, and early gothic rock. Indeed, in an interview I did with Arctic Flowers almost two years ago, founder and guitarist Stan Wright stated, "Our sound is a mix of punk, deathrock, post punk, and goth. Aggressive but at times danceable and melodic."
