MP3 Wolf Tickets - Car Alarms Are Entertaining
Indie/electronica songs in which noise tries to wrestle melody to the ground. Sometimes it sounds like black ants on white paper.
14 MP3 Songs
ROCK: Experimental Rock, FOLK: Anti-Folk
The songs on "Car Alarms Are Entertaining" were recorded in 2001, and the album was finished one month before 9/11. This is a remastered ''reissue'' of the album from back then. The music is loop and folk-based but with experimentation thrown in, at times a bit like Autechre covering the Beatles. Even though a main point was discovering how much could be done with a computer and an unhinged imagination, what always mattered most was melody, especially when the album moves into electronic and instrumental territory. Each of the songs evolved during the recording process and some never existed before being committed to hard disk, which was a very different approach from what Wolf Tickets had been about until then (ie, songs played on acoustic guitar alone). The record jumps easily between extremes - witness the rhythmic assault of "Pad" and "Milk Alloy" juxtaposed to the quiet intensity of "First Girl in Oil", "Tijuana", and "6". Elsewhere, the songs go down any road that seems available: jackknifed folk on "Jiveball with Dolores" and a peculiar, electronic species of blues on "Broken Bones".
