Plain Brown Wrappers #7- Psychedelic Hopscotch
















As I was wrapping up my last podcast, I honestly thought that a new Plain Brown Wrappers was within earshot. But the unpredictable nature of life stepped in to reveal that there are some things that need to take precedent over Eclectic Grooves. I'll be the first to admit that I wish I had more time to dedicate to the blog, but free time has been available in short doses during the past month. For those of you who are still stopping by, I wanted to extend my deepest gratitude to you for sticking by me through thick and thin (believe me I know it's been thin lately).

Anyway, It took a little coaxing from one of the regulars to light a firecracker under my ass, but I am happy to say that I have something special for the latest episode of Plain Brown Wrappers.

What begins with a subtle hum slowly builds into a cascading wave of noise fragments that finally explodes into a full-on frenzied freakout by the closing of the track. You would think that by the sound of this opening track, you could write this band off as the latest in a dying breed of experimental noise artists with a penchant for earth shattering dynamics, but this is only the first chapter in a story that unfolds in unpredicatable, twisting patterns. There is much to be discovered here that pays off after repeated listens, so let your mind go and experience the expansive sonic unverse that awaits you around the corner.

I would love for all of you to participate in guessing the identity of this week's Plain Brown Wrappers!


Until next time...

You got me on this one, too. Have to agree with No-head, it sounds like SMM or ZMM or Von Zamla or some such variation but not exactly. Same crazy humorous take on psych, but somehow not the same virtuosity I recall from Zamlaranamma or Family Cracks or Maltid? I'll keep listening, but gotta say right now I just don't know. Thanks for the new musick & the new challenge. Trying to decide if I like this one or not.
