the transcendents - dirt songs

'dirt songs' is the latest DIY LP from new zealand based post-modern musical collective the transcendents. like their previous releases, it is a home-cooked stew of lofi post-punk 'sprechgesang' cooked up using a wide range of methodologies, from the clean and electronic to the grittiest analog. the eclectic, looping, jagged psychedelic soundscapes provide a backdrop for spoken-word style reflections on the contradictions and injustices of the modern world.

the featured track, 'data entry dadism', with it's accompanying video, kind of reminds me of sleaford mods if they were high on acid and mushrooms instead of cheap cider and beer. i recommend digging into the 'dirt songs' of the transcendents.
