Profane’, Couch’s fourth album, certainly isn’t going to kick-start any parties, and ‘Meine Marke’ – with its passionless precision plucking and funereal pace – is a good example of why post-rock has alienated so many people. But Couch frequently achieve a gently melodic fury that’s both cerebral and brutal, grim yet powerfully visceral. The Big Read – The Specials and Saffiyah Khan: What we said has reached people – and that’s the only important thing.

A strangely subdued work, Couch's fourth album, Profane, picks up more or less where Fantasy, the band's prior album, left off - that is, it delivers more of the group's sleek, Krautrock-inspired instrumentals - but plays like a less melodic, less inspired version of that album. Profane begins promisingly with "Plan," which sports some interestingly distorted textures à la Tortoise's Standards, and the chiming, stately "Alle Auf Passe," which defines Couch's newfound polish. Midway through, however, Profane begins to sound a little too refined.

Couch - Profane is difficult to label. I guess I will call it experimental post rock. The first thing I noticed, as a producer and studio engineer, is that the tracks all sound really thick and rich. The production is fantastic, and it gives Couch their own sound. The first two tracks Plan and Alle Auf Pause are both fantastic. They are upbeat jam songs that are very accesible and you can enjoy them immediately. Doch Endlich is also a great song. This one definantly has more of that post rock feel. The other great thing about this album is the drumming. Finding drumming like this is rare.

Listen to albums and songs from Couch. Munich's Couch take their precise instrumentalism a bit further with the involvement of cheery organ swells and even more angular rhythms. Their newest release sees them forgoing their moody edge and leaning towards lighter, jazz-inspired concoctions.
