- Family Perfume: Vol 1&2 by White Fence
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 11 May 2012
This is the CD version of the 'Family Perfume 1 and 2' that have already been released on separate vinyl records which of course being a good record shop we have in stock. So here you get both which means there are about a million tracks. Rather than tell you again what it sounds like here is Mike's earlier review of Volume 1. Safe to say, Volume 2 is pretty much more of the same:
They've taken influences from the garage pop of the '60s and the indie rock of more recent years to piece together this oddball 1collection of weirdo lo-fi that will appeal to fans of the Nuggets and Pebbles collections. The vibes here range from garage rock thumpers to quiet little acoustic numbers and sunny jangle-pop jams. There's a weird passage of concretey noise at one point as well but that seems to be a bit of a stylistic anomaly, although there are various other examples of weird and experimental recording techniques, like a song with really wild backwards drums that confuse your mind, but on the whole this is a pretty listenable and fun collection, like the Intelligence covering the Monkees or something, or sometimes like a hazy and distant Sic Alps. A bit wackier and more thrown-together-sounding than I'm used to from Woodsist but that's no complaint. Charmingly wonky experimental DIY indie-pop with enough catchy tunes crammed into its grooves to keep you humming all summer.
