Roachclip – “Calmer In This Town” – [Quemada Records]

On the A-side, peppy keyboard blizzard pop. Is Rick
Wakeman’s grandkid in this? Nope, it’s not a Brit
in a cape, but a Detroit dude named Bill Corrigan.
The song s basically a cave rocker, cymbally drums
reverb dripping guitat, but the rise-and-fall keys
from Corrigan make it resonate differently. The
song doesn’t really turn a corner at the end, just
rides a hyper escalator to and fro and back again in
his synth palace. Flip side reverb drips get
upgraded to dollops, for a two chord lite anthem
that could have come from decades ago. Possibly
language but its caught in the effects goop? Again
Corrigan’s keys shine, but in a very limited role,
some space synth strafing too. The song devolves
into a choppy chaos of a spoken sample, it’s a
good bad trip to ye olde psych rock ward.
