Not the Beatles, but an incredible facsimile: on their sprawling 27-song debut opus, Music From the Unrealized Film Script, Dusk at Cubist Castle, the Olivia Tremor Control manage to summon not only the sound of the White Album-era Fab Four, but also the unfettered creativity. The soundtrack to an unmade film about a pair of women named Olivia and Jacqueline and a massive earthquake dubbed the California Demise, the album incorporates a slew of influences and textures (including Beach Boys-flavored pop, psychedelia, Krautrock, noise, and folk-rock) and synthesizes them into a distinct homebrew of shimmering harmonies, guitar drones, backward tape loops, and inventive effects. As an added bonus, the first few thousand copies came with a bonus CD of ambient "dream sequences" — titled Explanation II — which, when played simultaneously with the first disc, realizes true quadraphonic sound. Amazing.
No reviews for this album? heh - I'm not that cool am I?
One of the greatest and sadly most underrated albums of all time!
It dissapoints me that not much people have heard of these guys! They're great!!! I suggest you get the tracks "Jumping Fences" (which sounds a lot like The Beatles mixed with Neutral Milk Hotel), and "Nyc-25"!!! If you get any tracks at all, then let it be these tracks.
Top 10 favorites of any genre
This album has so much. It moves and shifts but with fluid motion. The vocals are recorded just right and lo fi enough but mixed well. the layers of sound and drums are dizzyingly wonderful. In short .... Buy it. You must own this if you love music..
Formed: 1992 in Athens, GA
