Atlanta trio Omni instinctively understand something that most post-punk bands just can’t seem to grok: There’s no need to tart-up one’s sound with all kinds of bells and whistles and hyperbolic statements of intent; just make a simple sound and do it with purpose. Through three near-perfect LPs, Omni has stripped their sound down to the barest of essentials, trusting that their knotted-up guitar and bass work and unhurried vocal performances by Philip Frobos have exactly enough to say to get the point across. Their last album Networker (the group’s first for Sub Pop Records) is further proof of this unspoken truth, with the band getting somehow even more sparing in their approach to songwriting. There’s plenty of empty space between each serrated, jangling chord and within each supple rhythm.
