Big Scary / Not Art |
“Not Art” Big Scary
An Australian musical duo formed in ’06, Big Scary has a very “garage rock”/experimental feel to them, especially with their sophomore album, “Not Art”. The album swings between heavy guitar and softer drone-y vibes with piano and heavy/slow percussion. The album has a very relaxing feel and leave me contemplating the universe and my place in it when the album concludes. Recommended tracks: 4, 6, 9
1. Hello, My Name Is: Comes in with dueling soft and heavy guitar for a good 1 ½ min. Male vocals accompany gradual guitar build-up throughout the song. Fade out after more soft/heavy swinging.
2. Luck Now: Atypical drum rhythm with slow piano. Synth reverb on top of more soft male vocals. Deep thought feels~
3. Harmony Sometimes: Relaxing piano with soothing background vocals. Female lead.
4. Belgian Blues: Heavier track with strong guitar/instrumentals. Transitions between loud med-fast chorus and slower verses. Mellow non-word vocals to lay the backdrop.
5. Phil Collins: Heavy bass drum to open up slow/soft male vocals. Strangely soothing.
6. Twin Rivers: Light piano and heavy bass drum open up to male vocals. Female vocals take chorus and merge with male through track. Song fades out with heavy emotions.
7. Invest: Soft male vocals on similar piano and drum beats. Chorus has a sound of desperation in it. Nice piano outro.
8. Lay Me Down: White noise fade-in. Very slow and dreary male vocals. More white noise fade-out.
9. Why Hip Hop Sucks in ’13: Intricate piano/percussion backdrop with larger female vocals. Feeling like I’m left walking through an abandoned garden or something.
10. Long Worry: Similar slow instrumentals with a more uplifting vibe. Mid-tempo male vocals all through.
11. Final Thoughts, With Tom and J: Quick piano intro into some louder (relatively) male vocals and female backup. Nice radio/elevator/beeping fade out of the album.
