Fortunate Types, the brand new document from experimental shoegaze band They Are Gutting a Physique of Water, is sort of a twisted tour of the band’s each impulse: a crushing rock music adopted by a chirpy, skittering digital monitor; swirling guitars that give technique to a cheery, helium-inflected refrain. (Additionally sudden: The document is at the moment listed on streaming providers beneath the title S.) The band’s penchant for conserving it bizarre is harking back to different Philly favorites, just like the freaky psychedelia of Spirit of the Beehive or the creepy whimsy of Alex G.
On “Delta P,” TAGABOW even veers towards catchiness, opening with strummed guitars beneath a wierd little earworm of a keyboard riff. Singer Douglas Dulgarian’s vocals swim towards the highest of the combination, practically submerged beneath a Jenga tower of noise that threatens to topple. And by the music’s finish, delightfully, it does, as all the things collapses beneath the load of a cathartic full-band thrash.
