STN Albums Of The Year no.42: Colourmusic - My _____ Is Pink

If there's one thing Colourmusic have mastered it's the dark postmodern art of noise and confusion, not to mention the ideal distortion. That is to say, too much. Like a more famous set of Oklahoma psychedelic space rock experimentalists everything heads towards the deeper end of the red for a reason, eschewing the idea of maintaining one idea to gleefully stride across the genres, knocking down puny structuralism on its way. Heavy load, atomically rhythmic acid road trips may be the usual setting but inside that there's glam grooves, hip swinging damaged hooks, airy ambience, droning interludes, vocal choir chants... and songs are always just within touching distance where the streams cross.
