BUG CHASER: Billy Saw a Pear: 7″

I’m amazed at how many members a band can squeeze into one photo. Out of St. Louis, this octet jams psychedelic, humor core with gang vocals and a sparse sprinkling of synths. Of the two new songs, the title track comes off like the inappropriate celebration of a simpleton’s discovery—maybe I’m missing something? “She’s Ninety” is more nonsensical ramblings over effects pedals. Sometimes less is more. –Kristen K.
