Colossal Yes: Backbiter Blues / The Good Fear: Be Like Us (grey vinyl, Gold Robot Records, 2010)

Another blind purchase. A split disc where Colossal Yes deliver the “Backbiter Blues” on side A, backed up by The Good Fear on side B with “Be Like Us”. Unlike some of my previous blind purchases, I absolutely love this.

The woozy, lo-fi sound of Colossal Yes is the musical equivalent of treacle. A soulful influence meets rhythm & blues with a touch of jazz. Almost reminds me of The Bees. According to the included download card the band made the recording with one ribbon microphone, which makes it even more impressive.

The Good Fear contrast this with a darker tone on “Be Like Us”. Indie rock meets a black tinged country/folk rock sound. Oddly at certain points I can almost hear elements of Tally of the Yes Men by Goldspot during the harmonies.

If anything this has whet my appetite for more Colossal Yes. Hopefully more good sounds await.
