Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

PSAPP

The Camel's Back

2009-02-18

London duo, Galia Durant and Carim Clasmann, make up this esoteric pop band. You may have heard them if you've every heard the original theme to Grey's Anatomy ("Cozy in the Rocket"). This is cool stuff, featuring odd noises and homemade electronics. There is interesting percussion here as well as Psapp is known for its use of homemade items and found objects. (Is that a cat meowing in "Fix It"?) Try to figure out the percussive instruments being used in "Marshrat" (an instrumental) and "Mister Ant". Shawn Lee guests on "Homicide" and kazoos(?) carry the melody in "Parker". Except for the mellow "Screws", this is an upbeat album that is definitely worth a listen. Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth.
