TANG SOLEIL: Outboard Sensory Meridian Response: LP

There’s a reason the sound of a motorcycle engine permeates this LP. It’s the speed and freedom of Captain America coupled with Billy’s bad lysergic trip. Dangerous like Altamont. California if the San Andreas swallowed Brian Wilson. Fucked and out-of-tune guitars on top of a rock solid shimmy backbone shiver and shake. The A-side is preferable if you lean towards the funk and soul dirt and grit of an MC5-inspired rhythm section (and The Godz cover!), while the B-side leans a bit more toward an inspired Stones/ Pavement hybrid. A psychedelic cup-o-tea to be enjoyed repeatedly.
