Album Review

Krang – “Speed of Tent” – [Mammoth Cave Recording Co.]

Max Level   9/5/2011   7-inch, A Library

Murky fuzz-psyche from Canadian (Edmonton, AB) quartet. Side A is hard-driving in the manner of bands such as High Rise, but on the sludgier end of the scale. Side B is slower and is possibly more introspective–it seems to have something to do with killing buffalos, or maybe it’s about not killing them. We hear echoing vocals and tambourine during the first half, then a big wave of fuzz/guitar solo, then a quiet ending. One of the guys plays clarinet, so that may be in this record somewhere but it’s hard to tell because the recording quality is, as I said, on the murky side. Definitely worth a spin or two.
