Beige Alert - Your Neutralness, It’s a Beige Alert
Watch out, because Beige Alert is on the premises and the band means business. Experimental and psychedelic business. The band, which doesn’t really have much of an online presence, has just released a three-song EP of righteous crack rock. I mean, they must be smoking that crack rock because the tunes are so intangible yet instantly ensconcing. The band name and EP title come from a Futurama episode involving Zapp Brannigan, so you know it’s especially hilarious.
"Pretty Fate Machine" (NIN reference) fucks your face with an innocent and innocuous introduction that leads into several bouts of guitar blasts. I hesitate to throw the phrase "controlled chaos" around willy-nilly, but it moves in like a swarm until the guitar comes in like a superhero hook. A ghastly distant beast meditates and plots in connection with the evil tones.
"Megaman" is as complex and probably as easy to master as the old school Nintendo game (known for being excessively impossible) it’s named after. Heaviness abounds in the last track, "Two Oranges Resting in a Bowl by an Open Window," whose title is almost lengthier than the song.
