“Super Bells Lemon Slice” C12
(Vanity Records)

“Super Bells Lemon Slice" sounds like a shoegaze cover of the Cliff’s Notes to Alvin Lucier’s “I am Sitting in a Room” recording, and only really quoting from the last five minutes or so. BCPB knows how to play the room, literally, transforming their delayed tremolo picking and ensuing wisp of feedback into a midnight chorus of chirping cricket/morse code overtones mutating lazily with every passing breath. This is noisy minimalism at its most visceral, yet somehow all the while maintaining a most consonant slew of tones. 

A real noggin’ scratcher for those willing to pay all their attention on a 12 minute slab of pop-drone. And Well worth it.
