POINTY BIRD

Super Distortion

Into Space

'99p' shouts a starburst on the cover, but this single is priceless! Both tracks are insanely catchy: "Into Space" is twee lo-fi lounge with some brilliant retro organ hooks. "The Mystery Prize" is a dreamy fuzz-pop classic. He seems to be singing about some sort of sinister psychedelic version of the X Factor or The Generation Game. Complete with a twisted version of the conveyor belt memory challenge at the end; 'A heated pool with rotating knives; a percolator that really flies; a golden bullet between the eyes'...

Man In Formaldehyde

Ultraviolet Overdrive

    "Ultraviolet Overdrive" is the follow-up to Man In Formaldehyde's "Copper Sulphate Crystals". A lot has changed since that 2003 release: The melodic core is still there but the production trickery has been dropped in favor of stripped down, pure composition. Meditational and intimate, "Time-Lapse Flower 1" starts with solo church organ untraditionally stripped of it's grand cathedral-filling reverberations, leaving it warmer and more fragile. Its world weary drone counterbalanced by a beautiful oboe melody and shimmering vibes. Violins and pianos weep. Harps and vibes cast magic spells and time slows down to a crawl.

    Super Distortion

    Super Distortion

      Taking the 'group' name from one of his half-working JSH Super Distortion fuzz boxes, bedroom producer Man In Formaldehyde uses his home studio to create the sound of a live fuzz-rock band, complete with biscuit tin drums, Hammond-style organ, psychedelic effects and heavy fuzz guitar. As the case says, this is 100% instrumental music.
