Rick Weaver: The Secular Arm tape

Rick Weaver of Form a Log released this solo tape on Hausu Mountain recently, and it’s somewhere between a demented cartoon soundtrack and a really loony minimal synth album. I guess you could probably throw prog-rock in that list of descriptors as well. Lots of clattering drum machines, jovial melodies, and a short attention span approach to composition, especially the brief “Historical Music #1-4”, which seems to flip channels every 10 seconds. The second side switches between noisy guitar feedback and loungey crooning, ending with the dark, dreamy “Lie Detector”. Equally zany and suspenseful.
