L.A. Lungs are on Debacle Records and had a great album on our a-file this summer. This album, their debut, features lots of slow, dark, distorted, pretty, haunting music. Play at nighttime or on Wednesdays. Sounds like cassette tapes. Lots of tracks open quietly; no vocals just spoken samples, no FCCs.
1. (6:32) Digital preying mantis transmissions, repeated vocal samples in the middle
2 (5:07) Nice hummy drony ambient synth track
*3. (4:01) Electric guitar plucked underwater, seagulls, fishing instructional voices
4 (2:29) Sad, loud organ/accordian sounds
5 (5:45) Snarling darkness; a man's voice echoes around noise
6 (11:24) Bells and guitar harmonics looped everywhere, baseball card in a bike wheel provides percussion. Plucked strings, accordions, and wooden train whistles too. More straightforward, loud, dreamy video game ambient near end.
7 (9:58) Pensive; mosquitos, bagpipes, cash registers, flutes, synths, 4 AM
*8 (5:28) Sunrise music but maybe it's rainy; a return to the opener. Least weird track on the album, but really pretty
