Weed Temple reviews 54 Synth​-​Brass, 38 Metal Guitar, 65 Cathedral

Shit and Shine – 54 Synth​-​Brass, 38 Metal Guitar, 65 Cathedral

The ever-mutating musical Charybdis also known as Shit and Shine (or, as they call themselves in their newest incarnation: $hit and $hine) has gone a few stylistic changes over the years, de-amplifying their sound (chances are, you’ll never heard another “Ladybird” again) since their monstrous beginnings, but never getting away from the Weird factor. Because their newest album, the mindbogglingly named 54 Synth​-​Brass, 38 Metal Guitar, 65 Cathedral, released on Rocket Recordings is just as a solid slab of mutant loopadelica as you might expect. Summoning some dead German hippies back from the dead, “Re-Animator” style and combining it with some throbbing electronics infused with tape music legacy for a heavier freak-out factor, it’s a noisy, intensely psychedelic journey through the twisted, insane realm of Shit and Shine. Highly recommended!
