Boomkat Product Review:
This is a weird one indeed, the collaborative project of Bill Taft (Smoke/The Jody Grind), Mathew Carson, Will Fratesi (Cat Power), Kathleen Hairston and Terry Boiling, Hubcap City (From Belgium) claims to be a guided tour through the underbelly of Atlanta. Listening to the music it certainly feels that way, and even though I’ve never been lucky enough to visit that most run-down of cities, I can really imagine what it’s like from hearing the spit, gloom and abstraction contained on this odd album. The musicians manage to one minute sound like they’re throwing small chunks of traditional American folk songs through a meat grinder and the next minute reciting surrealist poetry over Sonic Youth outtakes – it’s really quite unpredictable and with all music of this kind, not always successful. However for all the occasional missteps, the band’s overall vision – to give us some kind of musing on Atlanta – is hugely successful, making the listener feel disgusted and intrigued at once. Apparently the album was recorded at various run-down locations to enhance that feeling, and this only enhances the menace and gloom. Very strange indeed, kind of like Captain Beefheart with an eye towards the ghetto… take a listen if you dare!
