Put On Demented Calories With This Pineapple
Paul brought to my attention the cracked psych melodrama of The N.E.C (The Natural Extension Concept) and their incredible release of last year Is. The Atlanta trio managed to meld temporal motorik propulsions with excessive noise, all infused with a sense of melody that made this a continual spinner. Next week they are backing the excellence into the garage and roaring forth with a new, improved beast, called Pineapple. Despite the excessive allusions created by the voluptuous cover model, there is no flab on display, every flight of fancy is centred by a grizzled, determined core element of steely chaos. It truly seems like whilst these guys think they know what they are doing, they are barely harnessing the power at their disposal - who controls who by the end is anyone's guess.
Grab Pineapple here for cassette (through Itslips), here for vinyl (through Pretty Ambitious). I have a feeling that this one is going to creep up the favourites chart...
