Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2009-02-04
Simple basic self-taught DIY solo(?) “rock”, sounds like a first release. Heavily distorted, sounds like it was recorded through a fried amp. Home-made or thrift-store drum set, sometimes mouthsounds turned into percussion, guitar, unintelligible lyrics. Music gives impression of being creative release for a slightly bipolar/at odds with life artist.

1. Primitive brief rhythm
++2.Tons of distortion, head-pounding fun
3.Quieter noodling, angsty vocals, kind of a downer. Howls at end hypnotic
4.brief pounds
5.3/4 time dirge
+6.even slower, more depressing, wordless vocalizations & pound
7. briefiest track, a few hits on pots & pans
8. Guitars take forefront for this downer rocker. Minor key, sounds like October
+9.techno beat? Drum loop from the kitchen percussion set, interesting.
10.Folksy loop
11.backwards sounds, experimental, intellectual
