Bulbs / Wobbly [coll] – [Ache Records]

Unknown

Two groups out of the San Francisco freak fancy fanclub bring us some giddy goofy tunes of weirdo pleasantries. Bulbs is a duo of folks formerly of Axolotl and other projects doing a track of live processed guitar/drums (though you wouldn’t be able to tell). A delicate folky whistle-along gently shredded into shrapnel and sprinkled into a fishtank to sink and waver into some glitched radio static frequency invasion. Wobbly is a freaky philanderer that’s worked with just about everyone in the Bay Area experimental scene. Bulbs on guitar/drums for this track with Kevin Blechdom doing vocals; a surreal storytime pop song of bouncy cartoonish character, with some Eastern flavor thrown in for spice. Too slippery to be pinned to any box as it features a dense layering of overlapped wacko sampling. Both tracks are strange enough to make listeners wince but accessible enough to keep em dialed in. Lap it up and lose it.
