Future Lunch (FULU-013)
Birthday Party meets Pan Sonic and I guess that is legit. Maybe their music is some form of harsh, dark acid house, I don't know.
Anyway, this debut 12" EP that is limited to just 200 copies includes four original tracks:"Good Morning Little School Girl", "Dangle", "Oh Lord, Set Me Free" and "Who's at the Helm?". The first one sort of brings to mind Suicide with its hypnotic, monotonic and weird vibe. "Dangle" is darker, like minimal Depeche Mode. It sounds rather Gothic and the vocals are almost whispered making it feel even more spooky. "Oh Lord, Set Me Free" is kind of an abstract, electronic negro-spiritual. The trance-inducing video track "Who's at the Helm?" is pretty dark and experimental as well, check it out yourself. It gives me the goose bumps for sure and is the only track on the 12" that I could dance to. This is a pretty interesting EP, let's see where the band will go from this.
