When The Lobster Boys

Headed by Lars Pedersen, When is like a collage of sounds woven into a bizarre tapestry of styles - anywhere from odd jazzy punk junk pop to some severe Eastern Indian influences - making this sound like some kind of Arabic version of the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds. The Beatles are also a revolving and dominating multiple personality here, especially with the instrumental vignettes that sound like they are being played backwards with harmonies and sweeps of melody that would make Yoko a sold and convinced buyer.
