Oogbogo

Oogbogo

    This Oogbogo music was birthed out of Kevin Boog, alone with a 4-track cassette recorder, writing and recording to keep busy between tours with Meatbodies. It was a good outlet for ideas that didn’t fit anywhere else and, without the thought or intention of making a record, it became a bit of a weirdo catharsis. That’s probably why it’s such a fun, weird record, shifting speeds, chopping up and blending new wave, funk and glam styles in an acid-wash with full production wack, making up a set of truly beyond, out-there pop songs.

    The lyrics get heavy at times - ego, death, the human race’s condemnation of Earth - with a strong dose of ‘in my room’ existential remove. That’s just good rock and roll lyrics - and then they’re rolled into the tracks like any other texture. Ultimately democratic and this time, democracy wins.

    It’s just four songs but ‘Oogbogo’ has an arc from top to bottom, from cover to groove, at peace and expressing its jumbled innards - codices mixed for anyone’s interpretation. Working backwards tactically, the live Oogbogo is a real live band, with Mike Kriebel and Thomas Alvarez from around the way. Inspired to jam by the sudden existence of a record, they’re bound to have an incalculable effect on Oogbogo.

    If you’re interested in the future of sound, or just want something to trip out to, try Oogbogo.

    6 new songs from Los Angeles-based Flat Worms, which feature Tim Hellman, Justin Sullivan, and Will Ivy. The “Into The Iris” EP follows an LP on Castle Face (s/t, 2017). Filled with anxiety and angst, Flat Worms summon perseverance in an apocalyptic era, passing through decrepit strip malls and surreal headlines. These songs were recorded by Ty Segall in his home, and are now being offered on God? Records.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: Flat worms' eponymous debut on Castle Face was a scathing slab of thrashing punk mutes and insical riffs, where their newest outing measures that animalistic momentum with a more nuanced edge. Hypnotic bass sections and percussive change-ups pepper 'Into The Iris', upping their interest from recommended to essential. Another stunner, and a great sign for the future.
