Fanfare Of The Impalers
Tobias is the production/engineering mind behind Guided by Voices' last several albums, adding lots of dark, noisy elements to them. I think he's also hugely responsible for the sound of the Robert Pollard band Circus Devils, although "Medicine Show" isn't as dark or jagged as that.
FCC clean. MANY TRACKS SEGUE, so watch yer starts & endings.
1- Midtempo, low-key guitar angst. Simple dark rhythm.
2- Calm, new-agey, bright. Harp! And a jarring horn call.
3- Tiki lounge dance: busy and bubbly. Bass + lotta percussion.
4- Slowish wavering
5- Kinda 80s/electroclash. Upbeat but diffidently non-fast.
6- Guitar grind: midtempo rocking riffs
7- Heavy, slow piano; lotta echoey effects
8- Looped guitar riffs. Tumbling. Pleasant in a cerebral way.
9- Catchy little beat, springy little muppet sound in the melody
10- Midtempo rock. Guitar rhythm like a GbV song coming on!
11- Very Residents-like. Weird sounds playing simple scales.
12- Big drama/tension.
13- Manic, playful... then slower and anthemic. Lotsa drums.
14- Horror-movie organ and beastly growls
15- Big slow evil melody. Clashing drums.
16- Honestly pretty with a touch of heaviness. Piano + angelic chords.
