lo-fi rock in a blues / surf / western style. Mostly loose and messy (in a good way), with a bit of Elephant 6 / Olivia Tremor Control style craziness thrown in. Plenty of reverb on the vocals, twangy surf sound on the guitars, and spooky sounding organ that gives some tracks a menacing quality. Some tracks reminiscent of a messy Calexico, others have a tinge of freak-folk sound. Lots of the tracks bleed together, so check out the endings before you play. |
