Not much more to say about this record, except that it will certainly make you lose your head. Noise tracks, pop tracks, animal tracks, railroad tracks, heroin tracks, every track you could imagine, all in one album.

1960's Indonesian girl-pop band. Bouncy melodies created with slap back vocals and bright, jangly guitars. It isn't a difficult feat to imagine these girls bouncing around a pastel pink stage with hollow bodies and defiant grins. This album is meant for your T-bird and that good attitude you had stashed away in your closet all winter.
Favorite album of 2009. Swollen chord organs blanket mumbled verses reminiscent of talking in ones sleep. Guitars stumble through, track by track, with no intention or expectation. Drums bounce and click with minimal bass, all meshing together in a sonic pile of leaves.
The warmth of the sun battling a cold wind, like the volume of a voice struggling against a wave of excited children.
originally released to 500 on limited cassette, Afro-Nigerian grooves saturate the fuzz of this great summer tape. Repetition is used relentlessly to heighten the rattle of the bass on side two (seriously, the bass is pumped several levels above the rest of production on side two, for some reason, but its endearing nonetheless).
strings and thumbs pluck away for long stretches creating interesting desert jams, leaving you feeling thirsty along with everyone else around you. enjoy.
