CELEBRITY HANDSHAKE: Political Future: 7”

This Celebrity Handshake 7” can’t be described as easy listening. There’s not much tethering Political Future to a type of organized sound called “music,” but random crashing symbols, a smattering of guitar serrations, and deranged vocal barks à la Screamin’ Jay Hawkins could be construed as a kind of free-form, garage-steeped jazz. Even though I won’t be going back for a (sober) second listen, I bet this out-there 7” would make Captain Beefheart proud. -Simone Carter (Eastern Prawn, [email protected], easternprawn.com)
