SBSR: rev rev rev “hypnagogic visions”

rev rev revhypnagogic visions
<1> “Silent Siren” – This opens with a very fuzzy guitar riff that is heavy and anything but silent.   Now the vocals kick in and this is something between garage and Foo Fighters.   Near the minute mark we have a neat little instrumental part.   The vocals do sound kind of distant and also kind of like Richard Patrick.   I wonder if people often confuse Richard Patrick with Robert Patrick.   One makes music with Filter and those guys from STP who aren’t Weiland and the other was in Speed 2 and in search of John Connor in T2.   Okay, onto the next song.
<2> “Red in blue” – This begins a little bit differently, but is still fuzzy only now in a more tinny way.   We’re also verging on surf punk here with the cymbal set up.   This song sounds like such a mess, but I love it.   I can also hear a lot of static in the background which I now realize was on purpose because it’s gone.   Obviously this was not recorded with a computer program.  This has a very unorthodox style to it and then it breaks down at the 2:15 mark into almost a completely different song.   The music at least sounds like The White Stripes but the vocals sound like… Let’s just call him “The guy from QOTSA” because if I name him by name or other bands I don’t know if it will have as much meaning.   (A lot of people might be all like, “Huh?” and “Who?”) 
<3> “Break the waves” – This song is quite faster than the others.   It’s somewhere between mid-era STP and Jim Carroll.  Then it takes this random fuzz break that is just interesting.  I mean, you could probably easily compare rev rev rev to another already existing band, but then they throw these curve balls at you such as this random distortion.   Then they go into an awesome surf guitar solo. 
<4> “Brown hat” – We begin this song with more of that off tempo sound that I like.   It sounds almost like this is being recorded in a crowded room, yet doesn’t have that exact sound of human voices in the background.   There is a slight hint of early Weezer in here.    And then we get cleaned up a little bit and head into some nice guitar notes.   And around 1:30 we get some crunchy guitar notes like out of the 70s.   These guys just crossed about twelve different genres in thirty seconds.   Trail of Dead is also coming out in a lighter way. 
<5> “Jaime” - This one is starting off funky but also fuzzy.   The vocals come through clearer than ever before and now sound like the guy from Buckcherry.   Then he has a spoken line.   This is just something that will blow your mind when you hear it, which is why you must.   I also would really like this on vinyl.
