Technology vs. Horse: Bearacula! The Bear of Dracula

With a name like Technology vs. Horse, you really can't expect something serious, dark or extreme. Bearacula! The Bear of Dracula is, apparently, a concept album, but I still have to figure out what is the idea behind it. The song titles don't help either and the lyrics are not pointing out to a conceptual direction, so…

Anyways, this American band still managed to create an interesting and entertaining release. Hard to pinpoint the exact musical direction of these lads though. At times, they remind me of Thomas Dolby; in other moments it is more similar to John Lennon and all of a sudden, they turn into some mid 60's psychedelic act. As I said, interesting and entertaining they sure are. They rely quite a bit on keyboards to create those funny sounds and ambiences, while using both type of percussions: a real drum kit and programmed ones. A bit of distorted guitars add a fuzzy tone to the otherwise clean guitar work; again reminiscent to the mid-60's era. This album is melodic in one hand, adventurous and original in the other.

There are no bad tracks or boring parts to be heard on this disc. Lots of funny twists and turns and a cool listen are present to entertain your grey fall days. Recommended.
