Album Review
Adam Pearson
Reviewed 2011-09-25 
Rhythmic, delayed, drugged warm psych. This is a “C40” transferred to CD for your convenience. Percussion loops, psychedelic guitars, simple organ or bass, and really distant vocals with a strong Ferraro-esque, cheesy, 80s feel make up the sound of this tape. Suggesting that drugs were involved in the recording of this is like supposing that Sammy Sosa took steroids. For fans of eating Butterball Turkeys with body parts other than your hands, Sun Araw, Ducktails, and Wet Hair. Indie rock crusaders should play this too - it’s a stepping stone between your animal-named bands and kosmische drone.

1. Farty bass, hypnotic simplistic rhythm that adds light polyrythmic touches, gooey, almost chill feel. (4:44)
*2. Buzzy synth repitition and slow tribal bob, noodly synth lead contrasting with strummed guitar chords. Summery lo-fi feel. (5:40)
*3. Stereo complex percussion loop and two-chord organ anchor the piece with distorted vocal effects and guitar soloing on top. Ends with a couple of minutes of droning organ and guitar interplay. (8:25)
4. Spacey synths sprinkled around a machine-like percussive loop and then Emeralds-esque guitar comes in. (5:37)
5. This is Sun Araw with sexual, flapping percussion. (8:16)
6. The percussion loop features a lot of reverb, simple bass with breathing room, guitar is distorted and digitally enhanced by effects. (5:33)
