Album Review

Goils Goils and Fripped – “Goils Goils and Fripped ” – [Self Release]

Thurston Hunger   10/13/2006   A Library, CD

Name-drooping, test-tone potent project involving Angela
Sawyer of Thee Scarcity of Tanks. Test-tube patch-cord
wave-form fruit-loop of the electro-womb sounds. Somewhere
between Bruce Haack and a video game, with some serious
moments of “holy crap I just blew my woofer” bass. Seriously
moments here will cause stuff in listeners’ cars to oscillate
and possibly never stop. Harmonic frequency experiments,
more of that ol’ John Carpenter kinda spookyiness, but each
track is not content to stick with one flavor and mine the
be-sleepy-jesus out if. Instead your get lots o’ telemigration
from brainwave to brainwave. Alpha…beta…theta…gamma
there’s waves here as well that don’t map to Greek letters.
Nothing overtly Frippy, although there’s some kind of digital
ballon animal that gets stained with sustain at the beginning
of #5, before moving on into a rejected cartoon theme for
having more tremolo than is allowed in most southern states
and that is then followed by some robot gargling electrons.
Yep, it’s one of *those* releases…where listeners will go
“Oh KFJC…” and either worship this or run screaming. I’m
in the former…as I found this absolutely be-Goil-ing!
