Boy Dirt Car "Familia" 12"

Boy Dirt Car
After Music Recordings

Really excellent massive piece of experimental music. It's almost like a junky, dirty version of Godspeed You! Black Emperor created in a sad, dead town somewhere in the midwest. It has a lot to take in. Strange talked/performed vocals, howling, noise, grinding sounds, bass, found drums…  It almost feel like an orchestra. Like each piece is being taken care of by and individual who is focused only on performing hers or his piece. The vocals at times have this awesome Swans/Michael Gira vibe but other times they sort of sound like a Beatnik on fire. Again, the artwork is amazing but the design is also great. It has something that looks as if Raymond Pettibone had drawn and designed it. All hand done and a bit primitive and it looks fantastic. A weird and very cool record.
