Fortunate Kinds, the brand new file 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 tune adopted by a chirpy, skittering digital observe; swirling guitars that give method to a cheery, helium-inflected refrain. (Additionally surprising: The file is at present listed on streaming companies below the title S.) The band’s penchant for retaining 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 combo, practically submerged below a Jenga tower of noise that threatens to topple. And by the tune’s finish, delightfully, it does, as all the things collapses below the load of a cathartic full-band thrash.
