WHATEVER BRAINS: Self-titled: LP

May 30, 2014

They’ve battened down the noise quota a bit from the last album I heard—seem to recall ‘em kicking it up something mean—but they do keep the “weird” intact here. One moment yer thinkin’, “they clearly love their Devo, Neubauten and Foetus records,” the next yer all, “what is this, fuggin’ circus music?” and then you find yourself pondering if they’d cop to the musicals that inspired their cacophonous caterwauling. Definitely not the same ol’ shit and this listener couldn’t be happier.
