Sly-inspired lo-fi space funk jams, Jane's Addiction-esque rock bursts, Floydian psychedelia and Flaming Lips freakouts, washes of delicious late 70s moog cheese, guitars that owe a debt to Page and Fripp (as in collabs with Eno), a little bit of lowkey Radiohead moodiness, a little bit of Ween-esque weirdness, things getting downright video-gamey by track 9, random vocal samples strung into something that pretends to be a some kind of meaningful narrative, the works. This is REEEEEEAAAAAAL SCIENCE
6 poorly-mixed, sloppily-thrown-together jams that go on for way too long but sort of come together in the end. Many bum notes, either intentionally-played or unintentionally-played but left in anyway (mostly the latter but let's pretend I know what I'm doing and say the former). All sounds written and played or programmed by me using a guitar in bad need of a setup (kept going out of tune in mid-recording), a little Crate amp that keeps cutting out, free version of FL Studio that doesn't let you save any projects (gotta render them as WAVs), good ole Audacity, weak vocal cords that produce random words (masked by so many effects that it sounds like mud, to hide the shame), through the little mic on a laptop that likes to add this annoying hissing sound to any recording. What could go wrong?
Swallow The River(2014)
All tracks written and recorded by Anton Wanton Slotter and Austern Brahstern, Jr. Except for Track 7 which was totally done by the Red Hot Chili Peppers for real. Anthony: bass, guitar, drums, percussion Austin: guitar, vocals, percussion, synths, programming, mixing
Final Lucy Fer Jones album. Somewhat improved sound quality; 11 tracks in a mere 27 minutes, this is overall a more stripped down guitar-bass-drum-vocal affair than previous efforts. A good note for the LFJ project to end on, methinks. Credits: 1. Anthony - all instruments 2. Austin - vocals, guitar, drums; Anthony - bass.
