Speed Glue & Shinki - Speed Glue & Shinki
Really loose double album like the White album, but nobody is gonna confuse this with the Beatles. Electronic blips buzz hums between drum solos and smooth laid back tasty blues leads. At first this thing seems to be all over the place, but after a couple listens it becomes more cohesive. The album stays the same but my mind seems to be able to grasp better after a few spins. At different points Black Sabbath, The Stooges and Lynyrd Skyrnd all come to mind, but those thoughts come and go and this shouldn't be compared to those bands because that's not what this is about. Fleetwood Mac's Tusk comes to mind as well. Not because anything on this album sounds like that album. Kitchen sink...not really. Some nice blues going on here sometimes. Overall this album is pretty laid back and pretty awesome. Psychedelic blues rock if you prefer.
