Mazing Vids – “Are You Ready for Insects? ” – [Stricken Records]
Two guys named Ryan, playing guitar, synth, and a drum machine, make up this NYC avant-rock project. Sort of a Suicide-meets-The-Fall thing going on here (I didn’t make that one up, but when I heard it I thought yeah, that sounds about right?). Underneath, the beats are simple, and on top, guitars and synths poke around doing various things, just one of which is some Arto Lindsay-style guitar-mangling. All tracks have vocals, some intelligible, some not. I read that the name MAZING VIDS is an anagram of something, but of what I have no idea? NAZI DVMIGS? SZVING MAID? I can’t come up with anything. Anyway, cool music on this CD.
