I’m basing this years list on the amount of times I tweet gushed about a new album. Because how else am I supposed to remember everything I listened to?
White Fence, super eclectic and super busy in 2012, put out 2 volumes of Family Perfume on Woodsist and cut a record with Ty Segall – before August.
This album is also 1 of the 2 cassettes I bought this year. Now if that doesn’t spell out its inclusion in my top 6 I don’t know what does.
Sound is a little all over the place and somewhat hard to categorize or nail down. It definitely reminds me of what you might label stoner rock but it doesn’t have that sludge you sway and nod off t0. It utilizes drone for that.
Family Perfume vol. 2 is garden apartment lo fi and much of it made me long for Ween’s The Pod which definitely didn’t cause me to listen to it any less. There’s muffled words with lazy phrasing and sometimes it sounds like dude’s trying to make his guitar sound like the spread gun from Contra.
Good for those that dig The Kinks, VU, Syd fucking Barrett, Ty Segall, early Ween and lots of other good music, I’m sure.
