UNIFORM OPERATOR- KINDS OF LIGHT Cassette- Kinds of Light is Uniform Operator's first extended collection of recorded songs, in which the band continues in the "loud and noisy is always a good idea" direction.

Some say its got a late 90's/early 2000's post hardcore/indie thing happening, some called it "noise rock".....EX- members of JIHAD, Hail Mary, Inside Five Minutes, JBA.

REVIEW-This is outstanding – aggressive melodic punk in that way the more assertive SUGAR or BOB MOULD solo stuff comes off. The production just nails that fine line between polished and retaining a rough edge which allows you to hear everything but it doesn't vaporize the power. Honestly, it’s insane to me how good this is – the song writing, the production, the riffing, just everything is so perfect. How is this just a tape? (RAZORBLADES & ASIPRIN ZINE)
REVIEW-UNIFORM OPERATOR, “Kinds Of Light”-Matt LaQue has been in a zillion bands and all of them are quality. He just has a knack for coming up with great riffs, wonderful melodies, and lots of songs. Uniform Operator is another of his bands, hailing from Buffalo, NY. If you were to take Superchunk at their most rag tag and noisy, along with Matt’s vocals, which are a dead ringer for Mac McCaughan, and then add a truckload of grimey bass guitar you get the basis for Uniform Operator. It’s a wonderful formula, what with short songs with lots of singing, crazy catchy riffs, and a lot of energy. Here and there their bassist (whom is only listed as ‘Sam’) takes over vocals and brings a more old-school/East Bay pop-punk kind of a feel to a few of the tracks. The first half of these dozen songs totally slay. And around the halfway point things lose a bit of steam, but pick back up with “The Red & the Black” (again, Superchunk vibes galore) and “What Action Does” (which, to me, sounds like Burning Airlines at their most aggressive), and closes out with the upbeat rocker “Is There Anyone?” A definite good use of just over half an hour of your time.

REVIEW-Desperate music for long, late drives to nowhere. All kinds of driving, mid-paced melodic ’90s references are floating into my head as I listen to this Buffalo band—DRIVE LIKE JEHU, In on the Kill Taker, simplified Mascis leads, even a sprinkling of the JESUS LIZARD—but where this band transcends mediocrity or nostalgia is in the abundance of hooks, impeccable songwriting where every instrument makes its mark, and shapeshifting, anguished vocals. The test of any good mid-paced band is where they can keep (or improve on) everything that makes them good when slowing things down, and they succeed on “Split Self.” Though for all my praise, the sexual lyrics to “The Red & the Black” are kinda gross.(Maximum Rock n Roll)
REVIEW-Uniform Operator from Buffalo NY sounds like the kind of band that practices a lot but also like they never practice and still perform all their songs perfectly. KINDS OF LIGHT is twelve songs of a noisy brand of mid -paced guitar-driven rock swimming in hook with just the right amount of melody; right up there with contemporary gods such as Tenement and Screaming Females. Featuring members of Hail MARY and JBA, so you know this ain't their first rodeo. Im smitten. (Razorcake Fanzine)
