Album Review

Micro_Penis – “Tolvek” – [Doubtful Sounds]

Thurston Hunger   11/16/2011   12-inch, A Library

Superb absurdist sounds from France. Yeah, you’re going
to play this once just for the back announce, but you’ll
come back for the out-there oddity found on these short
blasts of trick-door percussion, occasional crumpled
trumpet and plenty of feral vocalizations. Cheery noise
bits are peppered in as well. What is the source of all
this? Torment? Anger? Baguette prices? Perhaps the
band name itself, summoning up a Napoleonic response?
I don’t know, this is not even on Bimbo Tower, but
it is just peculiar in the right way. With enough
breathing room for those not wanting to be blitzed.
Still Un-tamed, and fluxus friendly for the old folks
freak home. Perhaps in translation the “lyrics” probe
man’s psyche, but I think the probing is mostly meant
for a spot lower and a shade even darker. If you were to
play *just one* release that shipped with an artificial
latex lettuce leaf, please let this be that release.
