WAX MUSEUMS: “Magnet II” b/w “Magnet Part I Disintegrated”: 7”

Oct 23, 2008

Hey, someone really likes The Urinals, and as someone who likes the Urinals, this is pleasing, down to the intentionally robotish sounds at the end of the song. Wax Museums = art rock that doesn’t suck because it sounds like ants are crawling through everything and the electronics are crude, naïve, and warm (Theremins do that to me). It’s music played by people who probably know how to play their instruments really well but intentionally chose not to. Too well formed to be mess-sloppy.
