Colour Buk – “Licht Dinger” – [Wir Wollen Wulle]
A noisy sludgy mess from this Farmingdale, NY duo. The music is repetitive, distorted, and processed to hell and back… drums and guitars and voices and countless layers of muck. It often sounds like what I remember Flipper sounding like, but then I was pretty drunk at every Flipper show I ever went to so don’t listen to me. Some of the songs have lyrics that are little more than the title of the song repeated in an agitated fashion, for example the lyrics to “I Am a Philosopher” are… just that. The lyrics to “The Fall Suck” go like this: The Fall suck – DIY sucks. At least “Stay Depress” mentions tangible things such as a woman with a broken leg and a girl getting out of a car with her brother–somebody had to write about those things eventually, so OK. The last two tracks on Side B are weird shapeless things, with the final track featuring a jabbering guitar over a vortex of sludge, with ghostly female vox mixed in for good measure.
