FFO: Pander! Panda! Panzer!, Broadcast and the Focus Group, The Conet Project
A collaboration between Vitamin Pets and Yellow Chair combining field recordings and shortwave radio transmissions, Death FM pushes back against college radio trends and fashion-first schtick-rock. The album is a nine-track look at the end-of-days, envisioning the dark future that awaits all those who allow scammy tastemakers into their homes via the airwaves. "Theme from WXHZ" and "Station Identification" construct the pulpit from which this screed is founded upon; "Is Dead" is a salvo of bombastic proportions; and "Le nozze di Rodman" dunks the listener into the nether world of intercepted broadcasts and crossed wires. The album is at times blissful ("Seven Sisters Singing") and blistering ("Octavian Man") and promises to provide all those who download it with a singularly strange experience. http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Vitamin_Pets/Death_FM/

Energized by a shockingly great 30th Anniversary mini-tour, wiggy art-punk popsters The Prefab Messiahs have cooked up their first new audio hi-jinks since originally disbanding in 1983(!). Keep Your Stupid Dreams Alive ─ a co-release between BURGER Records and KLYAM Records ─ is a solid garage-psych-meets-power-pop slam.
The Prefabs defiantly pick up where they left off and go Way Beyond, connecting-the-dots to 'THE NOW' for anyone who has been intrigued by their prophetic proto-lo-fi garage-psych-pop sounds.
This new batch of songs etches a loose Siddhartha-like trajectory—partly inspired by the band's early experiences—of a desperately idealistic journey from suburb to school, forming a band, encountering life’s pratfalls, and finally—battling disillusionment and self-doubt—gaining enough insight to keep dreams alive in a messed up and uncaring world. Dig?
"Weirdoz Everywhere" alternates irresistible garage-blast turnarounds and power-jangle verses; "Orange Room" evokes some classic acid-pop as bassist Trip sings about his vibrant old crash space; "Bobb's Psychedelic Car" is a trippy-yet-bracing tip of the hat to their original guide & guru, outsider psych legend Bobb Trimble (who took the photo above after the Prefabs painted his '74 Century—with the paint left over from the Orange Room!).
The sessions were captured by ace knob-twiddlers Doug Tuttle (ex-MMOSS, now solo on Trouble In Mind) and Jesse Gallagher (recorded Quilt's 1st LP for Mexican Summer). The final mixes were conjured by the band themselves, and Burger's mastering guru Patrick Haight applied the final happy-glaze.
The crazy dreams encapsulated here all conspire to live on timelessly, even without pausing to take heed of the title track’s mischievous prodding. Keep 'em alive, kids of all ages!
