Listen: Noa Deane's New Album "Bouncyball"
Enough vocal grit to make you feel like pouring yourself a lemon and ginger tea.
Blistar's first EP Barbie69 was a total DIY job, recorded in the 'downstairs kitchen of my parent's house', this time round Noa Deane's recruited help manning the faders, and listening through his full length release, Bouncyball, it seems like it's paid off.
The production is light years ahead of the debut EP. The drums are cleaner, guitars are richer and Noa sings (mostly) with more controlled conviction.
Don't worry, the raw energy remains, it's no super hi-fi studio production, mixed by some out of touch old dude. No, there's still plenty of noise, feedback and thick, gooey distortion – it's just a little more intelligently captured and arranged.
Like Barbie69, there's loads of Sub Pop Records 1989 nostalgia, Jazzmaster fuzz and angsty vocals.
Slide down, tap a triangle and dial the levels.
Mild Attack is actually quite catchy, Bug's Curry may or may have not have been influenced by a cuisine creation by Beau Foster and F.E.T aka 'Fuck Every Thing’ is definitely the moshpit flagship.
Blistar mightn’t be Noa’s leading source of funds, but throw him $10 and you can own the files and tape them onto your cassette walkman.
