- Fistula / Mobility Plaza by Chips for the Poor
1 review. Write a review for us »
This is ace! Chips for the Poor appear to be going up in the world, recording this new seven with none other than Bobby Conn. 'Fistula' has got a drum machine beat, an afrobeat guitar line, and then a wall of fuzzy jangle and Mark E Smith-esque chanted vocals over the top of it. The intro's a bit Paul Simon but then it turns totally fucking smart, like Sauna Youth playing an Ian Dury song or something - infectious, intuitive melodies and dirty tones.
Flip it and 'Mobility Plaza' is a more downbeat number, with their “clacker box” pushing along some shoegazey jangles while S.C.O.T.T. yelps over the top. Quite summery and once again there's a bit of an Afro feel in the second half when the bass line is joined with these little staccato runs of guitar chords. This one gets a bit repetitive towards the end and could maybe be a minute shorter but these are both quality summer jams.
