SWCK / Unicorn Chasers

From their website: “Unicorn Chasers is a record based around the Jew’s Harp that chronicles the folk music of a neo-native peoples who must contend with an ever present menace of Unicorns who share their post-apocalyptic world.”

A world music flavor (is that a didgeridoo?) meeting the USA's south with a twang, plucky guitar. Lots of twang, guitars and some progressive riffs with an experimental feel. A few, fun, upbeat tracks that get the toes tapping and bring you to the South.

FCC: Clean

Disc 1: 3, 4, 10, 13

1 Aborigine sound with a twang feel [instrumental]

2 upbeat and twangy quick rifts

3* slowly progressing wobble beats, sad stumble down the street, picks up the beat for porch sitting fun (second half)*

4**Bango-tasktic! With a twist of alternative instrumental spunk, twangy bounce Zydeco*

5 slow guitar opening, more traditional light rock feel, melding into faster guitars and almost a rock ballad

6 robotic twang with guitars and a syntheses

7 progressive guitar twang with swirls and pops, layered sound

8 low sound volume until 1:10, barely hear and at an off-killer pace. [do not play]

9 upbeat guitar twang and nicely layer play

10* Spanish flamenco start to light rock layer on top*

11 quite until 1:00, balcony plucking sound, non-progressive, ends 8 sec early

12 low rumbling start, vast desert sound, no progression, miss-adventure

13* Bells and whistles, upbeats and guitar adventure*

14 upbeat computer twang

15 Twang guitar with drums and slowly twisting guitars rift

16 slow twang guitar with pops and picks, picks up steam

17 oddly western feel with up-tempo drums and a worldly feel, ends 15 secs early
