Telementals: Universal Burst tape

Telementals: Universal Burst tape

Jordan Collingridge has been helping to keep Far House active as a venue since Eric Stephenson moved to Chicago. He’s also been recording his own music there, as part of a few bands as well as his solo project, Telementals. This is his first album under that name, and a pretty solid collection of fuzzy home-recorded garage rock with guitars, drums, and synths. A bunch of it has its more Castle Face-like psych-leaning moments like “Black Magic” and “Hidden Sun”, but there’s also more straightforward driving punk-ish songs like “Crash N Burn”. “Plastik” has a drum machine and hints at a more electronic side, but it isn’t really fully explored here. “Life Is Strange” ends the album with a long, dark trip down the spiral. Available now through Bandcamp.
