Starving Weirdos, Land Lines

Land Lines (Amish) is the California band Starving Weirdos's latest. It is a statement over and above what one would expect. It has long, creeped-out electronic sprawls that hit in a post-psychedelic way. It blends wall-of-sound soundscape with Javanese nightmare vocals.

It's heavily multi-layered, weird symphonic collaged sectional mastery for your ears. It is ethnic music from another planet. It drones, feeds into itself, rites its post-spring, echoes against the universal container tank.

Towards the end, there is a kind of Nico night of the living live kind of song that fits in nicely, still dense as all get-out.

There are some Indian influences here articulated among the jungle of sustained sound.

Wow. If you like weirdness as a kind of thick-carpeted orchestral-electronic expansiveness, here it is. Impressive cacophony!
