RIYL: Thee Oh Sees, The Murlocs, Flightless Records

Label: Flightless Records / ATO

UPDATED (11/11): 2nd Flightless Records press of /2000 is up!

Man, just when you thought you could take a breather from Nonagon Infinity‘s everlasting psych groove loop…WHAM!  New album.  Prepare yourself for Flying Microtonal Banana, 9 tracks featuring nothing but microtonal instruments.

Each member of the band was given a budget of $200 to buy instruments and turn them microtonal, so expect modified electric guitars and basses, keyboards, harmonicas and a turkish horn called a Zurna.  First single Rattlesnake gives you a taste of what’s to come with a punchy krautrock beat down, wah-wah pedals, Stu Mackenzie’s classic multi-octave double tracking vocals and a f-ing spirit flute solo.  Get juiced, my minstrels.  Come February, we’re gonna have album #9.

Keep in mind that this particular vinyl variant is from ATO Records.  It’ll come with a gold-accented jacket and a zine.  Shit yeah.  I know a lot of you cowboys like getting your wax from the source, so hang in there for Flightless Records to drop their eye candy variants really soon.
