1. Schizo Fun Addict – Jericho Son Down
“The Jericho Son Down came for them as they rode on out of the city”
2. Schizo Fun Addict – Mercy Calling
“Maybe the time has come to decide the fate of the world, who will be gold and who will be burned”
3. The Boy From Space – The Farm
4. The Boy From Space – Wouldn’t You Rather Be A Winner?
“Commitment means being prepared to do extra things, going the extra mile”
‘Jericho Son Down’ is a dark atmospheric ride with waves of shimmering Guitars and it’s not unlike Frank Black covering Nick Drake. In contrast ‘Mercy Calling’ is a breezy acoustic song with haunting Nico like female vocals.
‘The Farm’ is a fun little instrumental complete with handclaps that’s sure to put you in a good mood. The best track ‘Wouldn’t You Rather Be A Winner?’ is saved for last. It takes the voice from a motivational tape and layers it over what sounds like the music from Mario Kart to create something danceable and totally hypnotic.
