The Beta Band - The Beta Band

The Beta Band doesn't bend genres so much as it folds them into a quantum singularity. Yeah, I'm pretty proud of that opening line, so let's just roll with it.

Anyway, The Beta Band is an indescribable mass of indie tomfoolery. They do precisely whatever they please, and they end up appealing to the sort of people who have heard a bazillion verse/ chorus/ verse songs, and are simply tired of it. They are gloriously weird. They're the Scottish Flaming Lips.

This, their debut album, goes in fifteen different directions at once. It baffles and amuses in unpredictable ways. When I'm in the mood for it, it's one of the best things I own.

Baleeted? No. Not until I can figure it out, which will probably be never.
