The Olivia Tremor Control
Beatles-indebted pop outfitsEnglish and otherwiseare an iTunes dollar a dozen. This is one of many reasons why so much excitement surrounds Olivia Tremor Control's return to the studio. (Deluxe 90s catalogue reissues later this fall don't hurt.) Led by singer/songwriters Will Cullen Hart and Bill Doss, this Louisiana-based Elephant 6 flagship band offers a screwed and chopped take on jangly 60s pop, its fluttering brass bursts, instrumental pile-ups, and SuperGlue-tacky hooks planning into drugged realms where trammeling found-sounds and tape machine shenanigans dominate. Deeply warped, deeply weird in a vague, dream-logic way. It's good to have them back.
