We are currently working w/ Ben Blank at his home studio in West Austin (www.benblankmedia.com), tracking songs for the new album. It's been a real blast and we can't wait to play these new tunes for you all. We haven't played live in quite a while but we've got a cool show coming up in Austin on January 15 2010, which will probably be the first time we play these songs live. We'll have new merch for sale too, and as a holiday special, we're giving away our debut album as a free download to anyone who joins our streetteam. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, city and state you live in, email address, and if you'd like us to send you exclusive schwag and demos to give out to friends, also include your physical mailing address. Again we want to thank all of you for your patience and support, expect to hear some new music from us soon. -INDOFIN
Foo's first thought hear is Sublime meets The Chili Peppers. But, there is some creative old school here with Indofin; by the time you get to the crazy intro and exit of "Boozer Holiday", it's obvious that these guys have partied with Pink Floyd. Yeah, who hasn't. And perhaps judging from the band's personal reasons for wanting to be on Foo's Famous Reviews (of which the Foo will not quote here) these cats have had a party with the best of them.
Now Foo will briefly flash the wok with a pinch of hot spices and give just a hint of warning to this band of misfits - get a manager who rolls like a rock star but, can also kick your ass and talktheir way out of five Chinese finger puzzles at the same time. Problem solved.
Ok, now that the dish is spicy, a bit more about the underlying flavors. This band of already infamous musicians pushes out a heavy mix of reggae/rock, with moments of rage like a punk band and absolutely remarkable segways and intros that resemble the tricks of psychedelic yester-year.
Hmmm... now Foo will very carefully put the finishing touches on this dish. Foo knows nothing of this 'Bubble' recording place (Foo is East Coast), for the most part the recording is top notch. Perhaps some creative care could be taken with the vocal harmonies. Foo thinks that they are to close together and thus adds confusion to the mix. Confusion spawns fear and from
there one is helplessly spun into the dark side..or..um, one might have the tendency to waiver in pitch. So this paragraph is not really about the sound as much as it is production. Maybe Foo suggests that they plan out the harmonies with a bit more spatial harmony - try one low instead of dancing in the same octave. If anyone has a set of those tiny pipes lying around, go high every now and then. Maybe even the high guy (duh-huh) would use a mildly blended effect like chorus or that hot little MXR flange -you know, the orange one that Foo's friend stole from him in collage.
