Toddler Body - Survival Smokers
Wolfcow collaborates with Man Made Hill this time around, and as Toddler Body they drift in and around a few songs (actually seventeen) that run the gamut from overheard TV vocals, drumming that mimics a washing machine, scuzz-disco and electronic mud-rock. “Survival Smokers” is lo-fi bachelor pad music for those who want to party like it’s 1963 BC.
Bent and Demented are structural starting points for these songs, which then flip WAY out. Most of them are pretty laconic, though, like an old video game soundtrack, so there is little that I confrontational or abrasive. If Suicide smoked weed instead of Comet they might have sounded like this.
“Survival Smokers” is a guilty pleasure only for those who don’t want to admit its genius in public. Toddler Body is better than Wolfcow’s most recent solo record, and puts to shame at least half of the ambient hillbilly raga out there (if there are any). Load up you liver and your diaper and listen listen listen.
