Porest – “Modern Journal of Popular Savagery” – [Nashazphone]

porest
First world problems breaking down the fourth wall and some
catchy third world melodies. Porest is no stranger to KFJC,
a Sublime Freak who tripped from the land of Molam to
Syria, remember? Trapping us with Neung Phak and stomping
us with the unstoppable Mono Pause before that. And
he built a Sham Palace along the way. Many of his friends
from those incarnations are summoned here. This album could
be what would have happened if Stan Freberg freebased with
hop hop? Or if Ken Nordine got stopped for a full security
cavity check EVERY time he thought about flying. Porest even
gets the band back together (not Conheim/Bishops/Albee)
but those secret agent quasi-NGOs-in-the-know Tourrorist
cloaked in computerized voices to protect the guilty.
Check out “The Field Recording” for their latest hits and
democracy operations. Or dig the family drama on “Schalked.”
Other cuts are infectious like the Agit Pop of “Diplomat Smile”
and “Some Law” and “Au Revoirs of Blood.” There’s fuzzy b
ellybutton slink on “Your Vertebrae” that is mostly an
instrumental so you can be safe, or can you? Hey, the album
has kazoos, karaoke jingles of hate and lyrical nods to
Negativland and Public Enemy, so enjoy the revolutions of
this disk, those at least are real. Ko Ki!
