[FDR-37] Off kilter minimal punk from Lake Worth. Strange, dark, creepy vibes abound. Chanted vocals, surfy lead lines that weave in and out of the songs, primal tom heavy drum beats. Party music for alien cavemen on a planet with high gravity. Good for your next seance, or for worshiping your sun god. The musical equivalent of being hit in the head with a hammer, not so much the blunt trauma, more the long term affter effects. I hope I never have to leave Planet Chill. Limited to 500/ first 75 on green vinyl.
"I thought this was a split LP when seeing it listed on the FD site, but apparently the band just has a split-looking name or I'm really missing something here. They're from Lake Worth, which is up the road a bit from Ft. Lauderdale, but this is no spring break wet t-shirt party punk. The recent band they really remind of is TV Ghost, with perhaps some of the Southern fried weirdness of those kids in Hibachi Stranglers or Amber Alerts, but without so much of the drooling snot-punk attitude. Cold vibes, shadowy reverbed vox from under the sea, submarine bass tones, sharp and dark guitar that sounds a little bit weird-surf. Lots of dirge-tempoed creepers, "The Greatest Man That Has Ever Lived" stands out while opening side two with some ritualistic-sounding throbbbb. "Look Around" is sort of a dum-dum punker that hints at something a bit more wicked than your typical no-brainz jammers. "Jennifer"s uber-rhythmic vocal cadence and bass/drum lock-thump is rapturously hypnotic. "Stuff Happens" sounds like a poltergeist, "Egyptians" is the soundtrack for a human sacrifice. I got far more out of this record than I was expecting to, don't let the name put you off, as I probably would have if Rich wasn't good enough to send us a review copy. It's not as honed as the 'Ghost at this point, but it's weird-punk that has an engaging "sound" (which they certainly go to the well with more than a few times) that works out over the long haul. This probably gets over better on the longer format than it would have on a single and you should definitely let it spin for a few songs to get in their groove. Recommended for those who want to hear alien-caveman weirdo-punk done well. Scum stats: 500 copies, first 75 on green.(RK)"- Terminal Boredom
