Human Adult Band - My Little Piece Of Heaven
A nineteen song, one hour set, "My Little Piece of Heaven" is a collection of "the best of" over the last three years by noise mavens Human Adult Band. Sludgy goodness abounds, festers really, with a lo-fi hangover ala Melvins or what Godflesh might have sounded like if they were American.
Pick any of these tracks and you land on something to chew: "Teenage Parking Lot," "Skeltons In Th' Closet" and "Hot Hands" being representative of the madness. Chords are discernible in "Deep South" and "Red Cent," but overall you are facing a morass of noise, lo-fi murk, and some gloriously bat-shit crazy guitar.
As unglued as the hermetic "Easton Ave. Laundromat" and "Samanther" are, there is humor beneath the menace. Like a Lynch soundtrack, "My Little Piece of Heaven" is not afraid of horror, but hope and laughs underneath bobble to the surface everywhere. This is a whimsical assassination of your ear drums.
d.i.h.d is the home for Human Adult Band because the label honcho is also HAB singer Trevor Pennsylvania. That freedom comes in handy, as the band explore outré territory with glee and, most likely, a beer buzz. Experimental and trippy, this is a great driving record-if your destination is a James Dean/Jayne Mansfield-type flame out. Heads will roll!
