LOVE KATY AND CORY STRAND "JUST WANNA TRY YOU ON" CDr (AOW 74)
Love Katy and I unite on this massive album of pop conjecture and conjuration, with each of us turning in a take on Ms. Perry's quintessential recording "I Kissed A Girl." Across the space of 75 minutes Perry's candy-coated provocation becomes fodder for Love Katy's celebratory excursions into burbling tarry wall noise and my own relentlessly psychedelic rushes of swirling sludge storms. Each project then reworks each other's piece; Love Katy explores an incredibly intense and varied atmosphere of punishment while I revel in a washed out, shimmering ambience. A simply staggering recording that was (at least for me) a blast to make every step of the way. Get the headphones on and succumb to total saturation!
