Moth Cock: 0-100 At The Speed Of The Present tape

Moth Cock’s first tape in 3 years features the types of jumbled jazz and corkscrew rhythms usually expected from the duo, but they also venture out into headier spaces this time, particularly on the 10-minute “Preserving Power of Pulp Paperbacks” and “World Weary Travelers”. This is dark crystal music, with horns and voices floating and evaporating, and heavy gases pressing down but also preserving and elevating. There’s still goose-like clarinet squawks and squishy, buzzy bass feedback tones, but so much more space. It’s still confounding and hard to make sense of, but maybe a bit less like Daffy Duck at his looniest than some of their other releases. It’ll still tie your brain in knots, but maybe more refined, less twisted knots than before. Just watch out for the sudden storms of delay-enhanced clarinet. Tape available from HausMo’s Bandcamp.
