Musik, die Schwer zu Twerk - EP by Electric Würms on Apple Music

6 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Electric Wurms feature Flaming Lips members Steven Drozd and Wayne Coyne, along with several other indie musicians all looking to explore the experimental prog and Krautrock of the ‘70s in greater detail. Coyne takes a backseat to Drozd and lets the group simply do their own thing. A compact cover of Yes’ “Heart of the Sunrise” is the group’s most accessible track and the reason for many to check out this debut album. But it isn’t the only song worth hearing here. “Transform!!!” is a brutally good jam, with the vocals possessing true mania and the bass guitar simply stealing the show with an intense, elliptical pattern that when combined with the boxy drums creates hilarious tension. A meandering track like “Living” is closer to expectations, with its seven-minute jam time feeling most natural, whereas other tracks have obviously been truncated in order to make them more accessible. Naturally, Flaming Lips fans need this, but so do fans of Krautrock, psych-punk, and freakouts.

About Electric Würms

Exploring the psychedelic prog sounds of the '70s, Electric Würms is a side project of the Flaming Lips' Steven Drozd and Wayne Coyne. Formed by the pair after years of conversations about wanting to do something jammier and more far-out, the duo recruited Charlee and Chance Cook, Will Hicks, and Dom Marcoaldi, better known as the Nashville, Tennessee band Linear Downfall, to round out the lineup. Unlike their main project, Drozd would front Electric Würms while Coyne would play more of a support role in the band. The project made its debut in 2014 with Musik, Die Schwer Zu Twerk, which featured a cover of the classic Yes song "Heart of the Sunrise." ~ Gregory Heaney
