Different Dentist / Waxy Tomb Gold Eight
This split cassette provides two uniquely brain-bending styles of good ol’ noise. Oakland, California’s Different Dentist unleashes “Slicer/Periscope,” mixing a variety of perpetually changing sonic textures: voice, synth and tapes that buzz, burst, warble and screech. It all makes for a busy, unpredictable trip through darkness, with the opposite side’s track complementing it well. Waxy Tomb’s “Recoveries” takes a more straightforward approach with a distinct metallic rhythm, hard-to-describe outer-space sounds and heavily blurred robot-ghost vocals.
Mean Lady Love Now
On their debut album, this Delaware duo’s flowery psych-pop sounds sweet enough for both kids and adults to enjoy. Multi-instrumentalist Sam Nobles backs Katie Dill’s soulful crooning with friendly melodies of piano, synth and more. The old-timey-sounding theater-style piano is the instrument that sticks out to me the most, right from the uptempo bloom of welcoming opener “One Big Family.” One highlight is “Far Away,” starting with a minute of what sounds like an underwater waltz before the squishy, scattered beat kicks with Dill wistfully singing as someone not yet old enough to marry an overseas lover. “Bop Bop” is probably the prettiest, again performing a switch: lo-fi guitar plucking gives way to a twinkling tapestry of angelic synth backed with handclaps.
