Album Review

Hair Police – “The Empty Quarter” – [Troubleman Unlimited]

Roland Blunt   3/7/2012   12-inch, A Library

Mad strangeness from this trio of psychedelic noise-icians out of Lexington, Kentucky…with spiritual and creative cross-pollination from the likes of Wolf Eyes, Prurient, and Burning Star Core. Mike Connelly (guitar, vocals, tape manipulation, noise), Robert Beatty (electronics), and Trevor Tremaine (drums, vocals, tape manipulation) create an ominous, searing, screeching, seething, maniacal, grimy, guttural, tortured sonic assault fraught with swelling oscillator tones, soaring rumble-sweeps…ill-gotten ecstatic wails, restrained respirations…a devolving radioactive bombardment of rip-squeak-squelch-disintegration beams…scanning a contracted and overwhelmed soulscape. The world does not end with a whimper, but a bang. And , this is certainly a soundtrack for the aftermath.

we haven't played it... yet
