This is great. If I were to be lazy i'd say it sounds a bit like the Soft Bulletin-era Flaming Lips meets Black Dice with Kevin Shields on the mix and someone who could give Can's Jaki Liebezeit a run for his money on Drums .But its in a world of its own really. Imagine the kind of modern American rock thats done by the likes of Midlake but with some nutcase in the studio intent on making sure that everything sounds warped and mangled beyond normal comprehension. There are strings, horns, all manner of percussion and keyboards here but nothing is left alone, everything is filtered, flanged and LFO'd beyond recognition in a very admirable and really enjoyable way. There are also some great songs in here, you just have to listen more carefully to hear them. I heartily applaud this approach and hope more bands follow suit and stop falling back on the boring 'vintage' purism that seems to be so prevalent right now.
