Boomkat Product Review:
Andy Votel, Sean Canty and Doug Shipton don their overalls for a 2nd volume of Popular Mechanics, rendering a Haynes-worth of synaesthetically-diagrammatic, diffused obscurities, and arriving one year on from the first instalment.
They get right under the bonnet this time, traversing myriad zones of far-flung and esoteric influence recognisable only to the demons/angels on their shoulders overlooking their digging quests. Eerie church bells, early vocoder voices, squealing psych guitars and horror synth vamps writhe over and thru each other for 60 minutes of combustible and unidentifiable sonics; convulsing, arcing and looping into one another with a logic that treads the fine line between unhinged and supernatural.
It’s all spannered in the best way imaginable, and a rare treat for any insatiable heads who require their annual psychedeliconcrètelectrocoustic MOT.
Free Pirelli calendar packed with sexy pics of the trio to anyone who can send us a full tracklist.
