Album Review

Bren’t Lewiis Ensemble – “Taxidermy Frogs Copulating” – [BUFMS]

Thurston Hunger   6/30/2018   A Library, CD


Squeaky, squishy, rattle and twist, grip slipping oddities
gift wrapped and warped from the BuFMS crew. Samples
spin through, a waft of an aria or something slippery
against linoleum. At KFJC, we’re up to a dozen releases
from the band with an apostrophe catastrophe, this
one delivers a lot of insectoid improv throughout. When
“Cuisine of Southern India” is served up we get the flavor
of humor that the BLE excel at, some kind of Tipsy trip
to a Disneyland tune-in, turn-on and blast-off. It’s
followed by square dancing through a slinky sine-wave.
Fundraising phones on “Dank and Feral” followed by
“Lots of Afterbirth” (a rather scrapey affair with some
shortwave from a long peer). On #9, “Monsieur Mange-Tout”
chokes on his incredible edible plan while a caveman
plays ping-pong? Flipper flirtation on #11, I don’t
speak fluent dolphin, but from what I can tell that was
some saucey stuff. “Ouija Board” is summoned to close,
with letras espanol and Mother Goose gets cooked in new
commercial voice-over flavors. Possible toychestra homage?
Spin and spell casted. Another weird dose from dese
weirdos. You are the Paxton Gatekeeper.
