EP Talk — A Dainty Bit by AD.UL.T

AD.UL.T
A Dainty Bit EP
Released: 7.13.18

AD.UL.T is what Lightning Bolt or Hella may have sounded like had their members sat down for a month with Frank Zappa’s 200 Motels and spun its host of ensemble-led absurdities while absorbing every intense, complex, and comedically taut second. From the vocal performance of the opening track “Pole Shift,” a nonsensical and undulating wall of queasy sound that glazes its otherwise reductive bass-n-drum musical progressions, AD.UL.T aims to generate and twist density and atmosphere into something both engaging and strange. For the span of its 10-minute runtime, A Dainty Bit is a packed listen, AD.UL.T’s shape of garage-infused punk prog to come demonstrated via raw harmonized calculation (“Slutty”), start-stop rhythmic and melodic shifts (“SELAH”) and a rather sinister closer (“700,000 FEMA Coffins”). For all its sensory plentitude, four tracks is the perfect length. 



Sincerely,
Letters From A Tapehead
