Carsickness: 1979-1982 (Rave Up Records, 2015/reissued by Get Hip, 2017)

Carsickness: 1979-1982

Excellent anthology of a Pittsburgh band called Carsickness who played a strange, arty (but not quite in a downtown New York way) sort of post-punk for a few years during the late ’70s and early ’80s. The vocals sound a lot like Mission of Burma (or occasionally a bit like Joe Strummer), and the songs sometimes have a punk attitude, but they aren’t quite as nihilistic as most of the other punk bands from that time. They don’t seem like they were safety pin/mohawk punks, but they weren’t quite skinny tie new wavers either. Also, there’s strange time signatures and arrangements, and sometimes horns or keyboards. The songs themselves are usually short, but tightly packed and complex. Some of it almost seems like weirder, angrier power-pop, and some of it is like a tighter, midwestern version of no wave, in some ways. The first song “Bill Wilkinson” immediately caught my attention; it started out and I was like “ok, power pop but slightly distorted, got it”, but then it turns out to be a song angrily addressed at the grand wizard of the KKK, featuring copious shouts of “KKK fuck you!”, and I am entirely down with that. A lot of the songs are short (some less than a minute) but packed with ideas. While most of them have somewhat skewed poppy song structures, there’s also weirder experiments like the drum solo and sax/screaming of “Hearts in Traction”. “Crazy Thing” is a frantic number incorporating synths, saxes, and honking car horns, along with manic speech and radio announcements. “For You” sounds like they’d been listening to the Psychedelic Furs, but wanted to make something slightly more upbeat. The album ends with an acoustic, string-laden version of “Bill Wilkinson” which is actually angrier and more expletive-heavy than the original. Carsickness released 2 albums and EPs and appeared on an early Sub Pop cassette compilation once, but they seem to have remained obscure. I’m a little surprised this band hasn’t received more recognition, beyond a few tracks included on Hyped To Death compilations, but that’s just how it goes. Excellent collection, excellent band. Stream right now over at Bandcamp.

Deadly Vipers: A Night of Fright tape (self-released, 2016)

Excellent tape by an all-female garage-psych-punk quartet from Detroit. Clear, direct vocals, forceful guitars and drums, and sometimes a bit of hazy psych organ, but the songs themselves never meander, they stare you in the face and punch you in the guy. I hadn’t heard of this band at all before this tape showed up to the radio station, and now I’m wondering why I haven’t. Totally kicks ass, and I hope I get to see them soon. Listen/purchase digitally at Bandcamp.

Lazertüth: The Akami LP (House of Watts, 2016)

May 14, 2017 at 8:49 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment

Lazertüth: The Akami LP

Space prog from New Bedford, Massachusetts. My grandparents lived in that town, so I spent a lot of time there as a kid, and this makes me wonder where all the weirdos were hiding. Their brand of prog is a little on the heavy/stoner-y side, but might still appeal to your (Gabriel-era) Genesis-loving dad or uncle. They also mention Magma as an influence, and like that band, this one seems to sing in their own language, at least during same moments (like the end of the first side). The last few minutes of the album have some pretty epic The Wall-esque shouting.

Arthur King & the Night Sea: Palmetto LP (Dangerbird, 2017)

May 14, 2017 at 8:46 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment

Arthur King & the Night Sea: Palmetto LP

Swirling, atmospheric sorta-jazz. Definitely similar to TNT-era Tortoise, but there’s some trippy, Miles-esque trumpet playing. The trumpets sound warped and Jon Hassell-y on “Yao Ming”, but there’s way more of a groove. “Metaphor” is longer and is most active and swinging during the middle, but it drifts out into the sea after that. The tracks on the second side similarly drift between languid grooves and spacious zoning. “Nigredo” gets pretty turbulent though, it sounds like someone’s getting caught in a tornado or something. “Glenn’s Theme” sounds like it’s begging to be sampled or rapped over. “Riverhead” ends the album with the same type of swirly melty trumpet tones it starts with.
