Lest anyone think Polvo's previous outing, the relatively cohesive TODAY'S ACTIVE LIFESTYLES, was a sign of streamlining to come, CELEBRATE THE DARK AGE opens with the dizzying "Fractured (Like Chandeliers)," which sounds as if they kept the vocals and rhythm section at full speed but accidentally slowed down the guitars to a wobbly warp in the mixing session. Halfway through this strangely entrancing song, one starts to feel relieved that this is merely a seven-song EP. But as they always do, frontman Dave Brylawski and his bandmates balance out their fringier fits with comparative gentility, as "City Spirit" might be their most delicate (dare one say pretty) composition up to that point. That is CELEBRATE's primary feat: staying true to their original instincts but finding a pathway to a tunefulness that moved Polvo away from their Carolina cohorts and up the coast toward contemporaries like Yo La Tengo. Recorded at Duck Kee Studios, Raleigh, North Carolina. Polvo: Dave Brylawski, Ash Bowie (guitar, vocals); Steve Popson (bass); Eddie Watkins (drums). Alternative Press (8/94, p.89) - "...further displays the pleasures of their elastic, twisting guitars and skewered song structures..." Option (11-12/94, pp.136-138) - "...The tunes often change tempo, texture and topic within their distinctive sonic constructs, making for a challenging, difficult, but always exciting listen..."
