cherrystones - Red Nails (Standard Edition)
Look sharp, it's a brand new album from Cherrystones - his first such outing since 2010's Whatever We Want LP, My Snow Does Not Melt (as Godsy). The peerless digger and all-round sleaze connoisseur brings some of the seedy, manic energy of his Jigoku mix CD-Rs and "visual mixtapes" to bear on this beat-oriented, painstakingly constructed set, and each track has such a unique vibe going on that it makes more sense to highlight individual ones rather than generalise: 'Honeys Pot' weds stinging acid lines to a low-slung G-funk break, 'Dirty Washing' is a very Godsy collage of Eastern drones, trippy disco drums, X-rated porno dialogue and mangy wah-wah, while 'Molecular Battler', a highlight for us, is a beatless barrage of guitar noise and distortion alternately guttural and celestial - think Fushitsusha but more feral and dust-bitten. 'Maim Rather Than Kill' is an exploitation funk score that never was (or maybe it was?!), 'Moon Stone' is a thrilling hash of coin-op arcade sounds and Mulimgauze-style drum patterns, 'Robots Kin' is toxic post-punk dub that'll have us dreaming of messed-up electric sheep for some nights to come. Taken as a whole, it's a salutary and supremely entertaining album for the freaks, be they wide-eyed initiates or battle-hardened vets.
