Album Review

Blue Sausage Infant – “Flight of The Solstice Queens” – [Zeromoon]

surferrosa   10/16/2012   A Library, CD

These are the efforts of Chester Hawkins, a sonic chemist from Washington DC. The sounds here are fuzzed and scuzzed, touched with an echo of a locust abortion.. dipping into everything from kraut rock jams to schizophrenic cut and paste.Drones for days. Layer on top of layers. Electronic convulsions, buzz-saw meditations and oscillating pulsations. All of this with rhythm, beat and tension. #1 is an LSD choo choo train stuffy nose story time. Samplage is heavy, riddled with broken loops. #2 and #5 air on the side of relentless riffage and super spacious psych-kraut meanderings. #3 brings the noise blizzard. Buzz-saw hum and a warped voice spelling non-words. space. nonsense. space. #4 and #8 ride the low, milky drone. Slow burn with an ambient murk. #7 is a massive freak out which would sound like wiggly wobbly noise gurgle without the blistering drum and bass work driving on high speed to the stoner rock desert..tying all the strings into knots. This album is beyond delight. -Surfer Rosa
