So essentially the band merely tapped this goldmine of inspiration and translated it with actual bass and guitars, tricking it out along the way with original drum parts, courtesy of Spencer Siem (Hella). The result is a sound that’s wonderfully retro but not in that portentous 80’s revival scenester sense. It’s more akin to deja vu, a profound feeling of intimate familiarity with something that one has seemingly never before experienced.
None of these all instrumental songs are over two and a half minutes, which is sweet because it means they can cram twenty-five to thirty jams on a single release.
-The Advantage (2004)
-Elf Titled (2006)
Both released on now defunct experimental indie label Rue Christine Records.
Oh, and if you have ‘the advantage’ (sorry) of seeing these guys live, do not squander it.
