Description

“…the music of Blues Control, as evidenced on this record, is a master work explodin. It germinates absolutely from the bowels of the Blues but erupts via a postmodern portal; there are gorgeous sheens of rust that fissure throughout, harmonicas smoke in the distance, guitars splatter, keyboards ooze white hot neo psychedelic lava, in the end, like the music emitted from Apollos lyre, it is a devastatingly wondrous experience. And as much as I hear the (non specific) PSF or Akiyama buzz, to me Blues Control seem beget from the prominent clang & snarl of Dead C, who was beget by This Heat, who was beget by Faust, from whose seed it all originated. And thats nothin to sneeze about, unless yous is allergic to greatness. A cd on Holy Mountain is next. Theys on tour right now too, so drop everything & go seeem! I know its early, but Puff seems a shoe-in for one of the years best.” – Siltblog. “Puff is the work of two modern gris gris chefs, and the most righteously authentic stoner gumbo this side of Twin Infinitives or Jungle Rot. Glittery framed sunglasses and dopers remorse. The finest racket of 2007 so far.” – james jackson toth/wooden wand. “Blues Controls distorted rumblings sound like Mountain or Cream songs emanating from a sunken submarine.” — New York Times. “Deep in the redundant junk DNA of the blues, between the reptilian throwbacks and vegetable remnants, lurks the mutation that gives life to Blues Control.” — Nick Southgate / The Wire. “Brute force monstrosity trudge in the cloudsmashing style of the mighty Blue Cheer…and impressionist, introspective space and electronic plant music on that subtle plane visited by Eric Satie and Popul Vuh.” — Arthur Magazine. “Celestial, watery progressive/psych stuns and beautiful puffs of minimal melody.” — Volcanic Tongue. “I saw Blues Control play a show a couple nights ago and it was totally weird and great. On top of being truly unique retro-futuristic heavy psychedelia (thats the part I expected), the visuals of their setup combined with the sonics to make me think of all kinds of unexpected things, like various beats & rhythms heard from passing cars…..cheap-keyboard entertainment in the neon-lit backs of inner-city restaurants…… all the details you might find inside a pawn shop or bodega…. what can I say, it is definitely some new kind of urban music.” — Larry Dolman / Blastitude. “The music of Blues Control, as evidenced on this record, is a master work explodin.
