vinyl thoughts for an analogue life

Flock Analogy/Beach Baby – Cassals

May 1, 2017

Format: white 7″ vinyl

Side A: rhythmic street poetry that slaps you in the face with its raw message. A truly mysterious but marvellous melange of heavy percussion, raw vocal passion, rutting guitars and whimsical time changes. Part punk, part Urban poetry…this is a wonderful portion of street level preaching well worth your pennies and dimes.

Side B: a big large humongous layer cake of Muse-esque guitars and tub thumping drums. Dissonant and disturbing. More Ed Sheeran like vocals but with much more indie credibility and soul. There’s an off-kilter rhythm that both fights with and encourages the in your face vocals. Experimental but assured. One of the most refreshing tracks I have heard in years.

Score: 9/10

Thought: preaching to a choir of booted and suited indie street nomads
