Five Songs, 7/27/2022


This is from a comp from the Twisted Village label (Deep Funnels of Entry) featuring a bunch of the psych rock bands the label had. I don't even know who was the most famous of these bands - maybe the Crystalized Movements? The answer is "none of them", I guess. I bought this because I really liked Crystalized Movements, and the rest of the comp didn't really turn up any new favorites for me.

Let's Go Bowling, "You Take Me"

I think I've mentioned a few times that for the most part, the more traditional the sounds from a band in the third wave of ska, the better I liked them. So yeah, I enjoy this. The harmonica is probably a bit unnecessary, though.

Ihsahn, "Scarab"

I don't know why, but I'm finding this absolutely hilarious tonight. The vocals, that solo, the pomposity of it all. It's just impossible to take this seriously.

Antipop Consortium, "Laundry"

It's hard not to think of Kool Keith when you listen to this, especially given that they shared a label with Deltron 3030. And yeah, it's broadly in that same vein of cracked beats and elaborate rhymes. Uh, I guess I'm not sure where I was going with this, other than acknowledging the obvious.

Blu, "To the East"

I'm still confused by that last entry, folks, I'm not sure there's any coming back from that.
