(Turgid Animal - TA534) CD $10.75

"Makes me feel like I've bored a hole into the center of the earth with my teeth!" says one friend close to this Starving Weirdo's alter-ego band. Self-described as "dune rock" from the deserts of Manila, California; this band is very influenced by its surroundings. Slow-motion metallic riffs ring throughout the entire fifty minutes of the debut album, laying the foundation for waves of rolling synth lines and clangs echoing in the distance, presumably a shamanic attempt at drums but too lost in a trance to muster any concrete tempo or rhythm.
