Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. And sometimes you always gotta do what you gotta do. Hey Colossus take up that lesser known second-mantra with glee, continuing to adhere to low-end doom traditions with a three-cut tape of lucid slow-burners. “All The Humans (Are Losing Control)” is a no frills stoner single that stays loyal to its chord sequence forever and ever and ever as Paul Sykes surprisingly sweet, crystal-clear vocal weaves psychedelic narratives (mind control, and stuff). It’s quite charming: it’s a doom track that really wants you to like it, and I dig that.
After that’s done and dusted we get into the versions: you know, the thing where you hear a track but not as you heard it before. A double-take on “Black and Gold” comes doused in synth-syrup, warbling vocals, skittering drums and wandering guitars. It doesn’t course-correct and nor should it. We then go after “Wired Brainless”, which was once pretty succinct and neatly structured -- it’s now eleven minutes and full of silly, Krautish nuggets instead of singsong. The first side of this tape is Hey C to a tee; the second side is them starring in their own cartoon feature-length.
