Album Review
Reviewed 2009-11-15
Messed up collage of sounds and beats. Weird organic sound samples mixed up with voices and samples of electric guitars, mechanical sounds, all sorts of stuff, but with a definite plodding beat to keep things moving forward. The weird thing is that this sounds kind of accessible to my ears, but it might be that I have been listening to Orangeasm and Brownian Motion for too long. What do you call this? Noise rock? Not sure, but I do know that I like it a lot. Just give this thing a listen and play any track. For fans of: Wolfeyes, Matmos, Aphex Twin, and a bunch of other stuff that I am not familiar with.

Picks: 3, 5, 13, 6, 2, 7, 10 *** No FCCs ***

1. Starts all weird then somewhere in the middle there's this nice upbeat silly sounding melody that makes it kinda cute...
*2. Sock buying supermarket music messed up and turned upside down. Wish they played this stuff at Safeway. That would definitely make me shop there more often. Definitely picks up towards the end...
**3. Probably the least abstract. Nice danceable beat and fucked up vocalizations. Gets bouncy towards the end.
4. Short tv sample interlude
**5. Wow, this would be the soundtrack to a nightmare based around the carnival in Rio but where everyone's face was Aphex Twin's... This is messed up but danceable at the same time...
*6. Scary, slow, plodding... The monster is approaching...
*7. Crazy shit... Mixed up bad pop and TV samples with acid written all over it...
8. Short sample of groaning voices... Weird...
9. Noisy, abrasive noise rock in the vein of Wolfeyes
*10. Again abstract, dark, abrasive... Difficult but good...
11. Acoustic guitar sample with some bird sounds. Makes me dizzy, but in a good way
12. Short and dubby
**13. Disturbing, kind of like a messed up version of a funk song... Then this tribal kind of chanting starts in the background... Weird, weird, weird...
14. Unsettling laughter sample with some tribal beats and samples of clanking pots... These people are undoubtedly crazy drug fiends...
