Album Review

Reviewed 2004-08-20 
Low production-value folk/rockabilly band sounds like its members are being controlled through their dental fillings by Roky Erikson. Male vocals, acoustic guitar drums and bass with a healthy dose of distortion, occasional appearances by a violin, and awesome lyrics that sound like the muttered rantings of a psychotic. You should check this out, especially if you have any affection for Nick Cave, Reverend Horton Heat, or the Thirteenth Floor Elevators. I like tracks 3, 4, 5, 7, and 10.

1: Dissonant acoustic guitars, distant vocals. Quiet wailing backup vocals. (5:14)
2: Prominent vocals with more distant echo-y back-ups, acoustic guitar, underwater feel. Whacked-out modern prophet style lyrics; lines about shepherds, streets closed to traffic, and the postal service don’t seem to have any connection to each other. (3:17)
3: Jangly acoustic guitars. “Angels in the engines / devil on the mind.” Folksy, nearly chanted vocals. “it’s about evacuating the North Atlantic for a dress.” (4:14)
4: Loud dissonant acoustic guitars. Lyrics: “No two sides parallel to the equator” (3:40)
5: More intricate guitars-like distorted bluegrass. Responsive percussion. Violin in the background. Long ending. “Information I love you.” (8:31)
6: Starts with percussion only-pretty normal brushed cymbals. Low quiet subterranean bass comes in. Intermittent vocals. The whole thing is pretty low volume, all (8:07) of it.
7: Slower, more melodic acoustic guitar and vocals. Not unlike downtempo Nick Cave with less distortion. (6:44)
8: False start on recording. Flat violin accompanies the singer’s quasi-monotone anthem of disaffection. (2:54)
9: More garage-style recording technique. Acoustic guitar, epic drums, submerged vocals. Crying baby sounds in the background, ominous domestic-gothic lyrics. (6:18)
10: Thickly textured slightly rockabilly style-not unlike Reverend Horton Heat. (2:59)
