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,
