Intrigued by Abe Vigoda. Like the name and certainly like the music. A disembodied surf guitar, muffled lyrics & wildly catastrophic drums being flayed set the scene for some echo laden ghost-rock, somewhere between Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 & Ariel Pink. In fact 'Skeleton' is the closest I've experienced to Thinking Fellers since the early 90s!!. It's a disorientating but vital collection hypno-pop & tribal folk-rock. Skewed and skittering, off kilter but melodic, elastic rhythms sparking off into mad bursts of percussive energy, vocals hover, off key and spectral. They use distortion wisely as well, like through some hairy basoon flange setting or summat. There's one tune that could be like a ravaged Vampire Weekend if they got lost in some woods for a year and ate bears. Other key influences are Liars' brand of voodoo mysticism and Animal Collective's boisterous organic jungle of sound. Totally over the moon to hear a new generation making quality wibble rock like this. it's incendiary & propulsive, spilling with agitated polyrhythmic energy and a frantic melodic discordance. Fucking excellent stuff!
