The Pink Noise - Wave [Cassette]
Experimental garage/fuzz/new wave outfit The Pink Noise have come a-knocking with their new album Wave, and you’ll want to answer the door. It’s gunshots in opium dens, where keyboards buzz and drums swagger. Cuts like “Shit Talk” and “Dear Gods of Slapstick” hang out in your brain and paint tube-fuzz garage graffiti on the walls shaped like vintage guitar echo. “Lurid Future” bubbles over with pure, melodic doom. The songwriting is all at once a fantastic, cohesive mess that spikes serotonin levels and dilates pupils. If they’re putting something funny in that Montreal water, we’ll take abig gulp.
