Bad Sound by Bad Sound (June 1, 2011)
The self titled LP release from Utica based band Bad Sound is a clash of genre. With hints of digested Stereolab and Beach Boys throughout (as well as some guitar tones reminiscent of late Steely Dan), the album is a treacherous mountain made for climbing, filled with peaks and troughs. Ever changing and silently adaptable, one might presume to know what it’s all about within the first track. But continue listening, because the terrain only gets more venomous and rewarding.
