“So even though there’s too much Radio Ethiopia and not enough Redondo Beach” – Christgau on The Modern Dance by Pere Ubu.
So right. When this band rocks, it’s like a spinning top or a gyroscope. When they sputter, it sounds like bad art. Luckily, it rocks with frequency. When it sounds like Redondo Beach, I am dancing. There are slow builds, chaotic guitar shrieks, broken glass sounds, broken instrument sounds. I’m finding myself attracted to less accessible music every day.
