As a member of Destroyalldreamers, Eric Quach immerses his music into lush layers of dreampop. This Quiet Army, essentially his solo project, seems to deal with nightmares and real ones at that. Amongst surely some of the most foreboding titles committed to disc ('Tsunami Death Toll Arising', 'Bombing For Peace Fucking For Virginity') are several dark collages of sound, which long for escape from a troubled world. Quach's skill is to balance the sorrowful political message with some frequently beautiful fragments of music; 'Tsunami' being one of the finest examples. The drone-heavy material can be a little wearing but that misery is touchingly captured on the closing 'Methane Trains & Gasoline Rivers (Titan)'. Arguably a worthy - and more approachable - companion piece for another wordless protest record by Rothko And BLK/W BEAR.
