(I guess it’s obvious that neither I nor my NCS cronies wrote this. Just like the first installment back in January, NCS guest contributor KevinP did this.)
IGORRR – Hallelujah
I was gonna save the best for last, but I was too excited and figured we’d start off with a huge mindfuck. This is also my new favorite thing of all time (for this week anyways). I’m even willing to give partial credit to our CEO for posting the Apathia Records Comp recently, which featured ÖXXÖ XÖÖX. IGORR is the main solo project of Gautier Serre (of ÖXXÖ XÖÖX fame). While listening to the prior band, I stumbled across this gem.
I’m not going to spoil it for ya, just listen and keep listening, it has a little bit of everything (even chicken clucks). The French have officially cornered the market on weird shit. “Vegetable Soup” makes me feel like I’m walking around EPCOT (yeah Walt Disney World), then a techno opera, a farm, a techno farm dance club, whatever. (It also has plenty of metal parts, don’t be scared.)
