SUPER FM: Fuckbird Barnacle: CS

Amazingly put together for a band with no members I’ve ever heard of. To think, I was this close to dismissing the whole album because the intro resembled King Crimson’s “21st Century Schizoid Man.” If you stick around, you’re rewarded with a healthy dose of bizarro garage psych a la early Whatever Brains or Vacation. And when I say bizarro, I mean untuned guitar solos, dollar bin guitar effects pedal showcases, and abrupt song changes. Of course, it’s balanced by a superb sense of melody and flow, or else this record would be nigh unlistenable! Luckily for these guys, nigh unlistenable is my favorite genre. Highly recommended. –Bryan Static (King Pizza, kingpizzarecords.storenvy.com)
