Totaling 16 minutes in length, the first three tracks of Wolf Eyes' Human Animal segue from one movement to the next in the year's scariest sequence of music. Its terrifying character comes from its quiet -- a lulling, lurching stasis signaling impending catastrophe, foreshadowed but never shown. Electronic signals whir through a matrix of quietly clanging metal; mimetic drums sound like doors slamming in the distance; a stinging saxophone pierces, like a tea kettle ready to explode. It never does, thanks in part to the patience that these Michigan party dudes have finally learned. After replacing longtime member Aaron Dilloway with Hair Police noise-tician Mike Connelly, Wolf Eyes is better than it has ever been.
