COSMIC SAND DOLLARS: Requiem for King Dick: LP

Absolute brain-fuck of a record, along the lines of Man Or Astro-Man? Spaghetti Westerns and surf music—I’m assuming Dick Dale is being referenced in the title—layered beneath techno space-beats, sound collage, and percussive anti-rhythms. I bet a lot of people more adventurous than me are going to love this. Personally, it felt like I was listening to a surf record while someone was messing around with different settings on their keyboard and slamming the oven door closed right next to me. Your call. –Keith Rosson (Old Comet)
