- Easy Action by The Alps
Well, this is a pretty wild-looking record. It's packaged in a fold-out 'pyramid sleeve', which seems a bit gimmicky to me, but it's very nice to look at...although what impresses me most isn't the unusual shape but how vivid the colours are. A veritable party for the eyes. The band contains members of Arp, Tarentel and Troll. Musically this is an engaging piece of psychedelia, sometimes soothing with tasteful and conventional arrangements, but then throwing in some experimental elements, too, with drones and repetitive melodies being grazed and battered by electronic scrapes and flutters. It's very immersive, though, and the ideas are well focused and concise. Like, if you got this record out while you were doobing it up with people whose taste you weren't familiar with, you could be pretty confident that it'd make them go, "What's this? I like this." Yeah, drugs music, basically, but good drugs music.
