This might be a weird comparison for a group like Lubec, but when I listen to their new EP Nothing is Enough, I’m reminded of the Phil Spector ‘Wall of Sound’.
It’s not a wall of noise, it’s a wall of sonic craziness that actually makes sense. Just like what Spector did with his production and recordings.
I’m on my second listen to Nothing is Enough and it seems to be one that will only grow on me with each listen. Recorded on a tobacco farm, it’s been called “croon crushing pound-pop”. Whatever the hell that means, I’m into it.
Have a listen to the second track off the EP titled ‘Your Magic Wand’.
mp3: Lubec – Your Magic Wand
The EP will be released on the Richmond label The Acme Thunderer early next year. Videos are planned to be released for ‘Cherry Adair’ and ‘Your Magic Wand’ while the band tours and works on their full length set to be out late spring 2011.
Check out the cover art and look out for both of these releases and a tour in your area. There’s definitely a sound here to fit some musical mood you’re in.
