Guerilla Toss w/Blanche Blanche Blanche & Gnarwhal
Eccentricity is the name of the game for Blanche Blanche Blanche. The Vermont duo’s catalog is piled with tapes and records that take a synth-pop approach to whatever other styles suit their fancy at the time — lounge, krautrock, New Wave, bubblegum pop — all of it sifted through a lo-fi, psychedelic, retro-futuristic filter. Calling BBB’s music “intimate” feels trite, but there really isn’t a better descriptor. Most of the songs sound like they were recorded in a closet, and you can feel the constraints of their equipment in every track. But like a lot of twee-leaning bands, that’s all part of the charm, and those self-imposed limitations give color and character to something that might otherwise sound pretty schizophrenic. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Guerilla Toss serves up discordant blasts of noise-rock that are just as tasty.
