Present Tense is yet another unusually powerful invitation to savour a few abominable maledictions by these wicked vagabonds.

Loud and Quiet

Present Tense more or less picks up from where last year’s Void Moments left off: mechanistic grooves drag subterranean bass along beneath sulphurous clouds of guitar and feedback, haunted by intermittent, foreboding vocals from Brian Case.

AllMusic
Exciting developments are just more proof of how FACS extend the challenges they set for themselves to their audience -- if they leave you rattled, they've done their job.

Uncut

Although there are sidesteps aplenty ... it’s this balancing between considered atmospheres and rattling noise that gives Present Tense such a sharp bite.

A dark and mysterious noise rock / post-punk album. It's noisy, and I like that.
