Transitionalisms finds North Carolina rock quartet The Nein closing the first chapter of their history while preparing to move forward with the next. Transitionalisms continues on from where Wrath of Circuits left off, showcasing the highly experimental nature of the band. A six-song EP, Transitionalisms contains the final four songs recorded with departing bassist Casey Burns in January 2006. Included within these four new tracks is “Sexy Beast,” named for the movie of the same name, the creeping, building “Convelescent Homes” and an inventive, brilliant cover of the Zombies classic “Butchers Tale” which is an absolute must hear. Two more additional songs have been included to round out the EP. “Hospital Television” is a drum-less more ambient song that was originally recorded for the band’s 2005 album Wrath of Circuits while “The Vibe (Crash Bleeder’s Remix)” is an inventively bombastic remix of the Wrath Of Circuits track that takes the song into different directions than was originally intended.
