Fluffy Lumbers’ debut ep, Police Cruisers, is deliciously chaotic and maniacally lo-fi like it was recorded for two bucks and Samuel Franklin, the 20-year-old who is Fluffy Lumbers, only scored such a cheap deal in return for having the shit kicked out of him by a sadomasochistic engineer while he was in the studio.
It sounds like a dementedly pop version of Ultra Vivid Scene, like Crocodiles if they lusted after Californian surf pop instead of Germanic icy keyboards and like Jan and Dean crashing into the ocean. I fuckin’ love it.
You’ll want to head straight to myspace, right? Make the ep’s lead track Cruisers Pt.2 (Police Cruisers) your first choice.
