Album Review
Lawrence Of A Labia
Reviewed 2007-01-23
Lo-fi heavily distorted psychedelic garage rock noise. Very, very ragged, noisy, grating, and good. Made in SF, 2005. Some tracks fall into obvious categories:
Garage Rock - 2,5,8
Psych - 1,3,6,8
Noise - 7,10,11
FCC clean. Picks 5,8,12,10,7

1-(1:09) Heavy echo voice and grating, psych. guitar.
2-(1:47) Garage rock. Start stop melody.
3-(2:36) Heavy echoed hollerin. Strummed guitar. Some squeeking thrown in. Second bank of noisy guitars covers up first song. Noise effects.
4-(3:58) Prominent echoed drums. Falsetto harmony. Chorus. Sharp buzzes. Primally builds.
**5-(2:21) Very raw driving garage beat.
6-(2:51) Psych. strummed, plaintive. Fairly "acoustic" but with effects.
*7-(2:08) Instr. Super fuzzed out chain-gang stomp. A dark buzzing noise track from hell (on the work-force).
**8-(2:07) Distorted vox. Slow and melodic.
9-(3:10) Directionless vox lines, long intro. Picks up pace to mid/fast. Sweet guitar solo!! 2/3 thru.
**10-(1:52) Quiet start. Recorded sounds intro. Loud jet waves. Synth tones. Some vox.
11-(0:25) Fast, drum pummelling that fades in and out.
*12-(2:06) Mid/fast distinctive rhythm that falls into place from chaos at the beg. -1:25 harmonium? and cacophany over a proclamation. Beat kicks back in.
