Fuck Buttons Street Horrrsing

Fuck Buttons Street Horrrsing
Despite an amalgamation of noise, electronic and indie, and the threat of failing at each, this Bristol, UK duo have mystified all and actually created something that satisfies and is entirely unique and stunning in the process. With six songs, and only one below the seven-minute mark, Fuck Buttons aren’t afraid to let a song breathe, and that’s exactly the way it should be. "Sweet Love for Planet Earth” uses cascading tones of feedback and twinkling dabs of what could be piano to set the mood for some throat-shredding vocals that actually add to the trance-inducing nature of the piece. "Ribs Out” throws in some tribal, Animal Collective-esque beats and samples to the noise mix, leaving the real experimental stuff to "Race You to the Bedroom — Spirit Rise,” which does tax the patience but, in true noise fashion, transports after a while with its fuzz, shouts and general chaos. Yet, scraping away the heavy industrial feel, demonstrated on standout "Bright Tomorrow,” Fuck Buttons are just really having fun while trying to blow your mind. Think of it as the most intelligent horrrsing around in music today.
