RIYL: Frank Zappa, Can
Label: Greenway Records
Indianapolis eccentric Ryan Perkins has been known to incinerateÂ cerebellums during his live show, but he’s taken time out of that endeavor to cut a 45 for all you daring far-outers. Â Similar toÂ the madkraut monstrosity known to the world as Can, Chives is able to unearthÂ the groove in his heaping pile of strange. Â Beneath the experimentalÂ jazz interludes and the hypnotic vocal chant is a damn good bass lick, and that bad boy just might propel you to dance under the right circumstances. Â You could call it post punk, you could call it weirdo funk, but for now…I’m just gonna call it Chives. Â Check out the first single on Soundcloud HERE.
Per usual, Greenway Records has 100 gourmet copies on ‘bloody bruised’ splatter vinyl for $12, and these will come with an alternative screenprinted cover. Â For $8, grab the white vinyl version that’s Â limited to 200 copies or just do away with the decision process entirely and grab them both in a bundle. Â All of these options await you after the ‘buy’ link.
