Ben Lawless “Friday Night 4 Lyfe” / Squinchy “Assorted Nuts” Split 12-inch 2014 $15
New release! NYC’s Squinchy plays in Autobody, Dyamaxion and Fly Ashtray; Atlanta’s Ben Lawless has been in King Congregation, Heavy Medical Hardware, Forever, the Bon Vivants, and Prefuse 73.
Ben: Here is a concoction strained from 4-track voodoo bitch’s brew to pure mad monkey mongo mollasses – a sour mash of scifi pfunk sustaining an endless legion of zombie big band party breaks. Squinch: a love of the dark and murky melody, a continental smarm and swagger. There is a sly touch, maybe it’s no wave surf music but it’s somehow kid friendly – melodic rambles cast a lo-fi warmth over this sci-fi space.
Shrink wrapped and bar coded, Ben’s cover is by Jib Kidder. Now rotating on WFMU.
