FREAK VIBE: Presents II: Cassette

May 21, 2014

If Cult Ritual mated with The Cramps, then the offspring would be Freak Vibe. And, boy, is it a disfigured child. The heavier portions are sludgy, mid-tempo ventures through hell. There are shimmering psychedelic rock’n’roll interludes that sound like Kid Congo Powers riffs. This shit is mixed up. Yet, there’s something charming about it, but, as it stands, this tape is a definite curiosity rather than a remarkable listen.
