Caddywhompus - Remainder

Experimental noise-pop duo from New Orleans. Almost a louder and mathy Animal Collective at times. I thought I was going to have mixed emotions about this band at first listen, but once I hit the 1:41 mark of the fifth track, I was completely sold. There's some really good Battles/Hella-esque "rock the fuck out" moments, and also some very solid free-floating points that will demolish the rest of those pesky brain cells. I would assume that this stuff would translate really well live too. I haven't had too much time to digest it all, but they're currently on tour and I wanted to get this up here as soon as possible in hopes that some of you could catch one of their shows, and if I wasn't in the process of buying a fucking house right now, I'd pick up the $12 LP from Community Records in a heartbeat.

I love these guys. I'm from Houston, where they used to live and still play a lot, and they're amazing live.

Their live show is not to be missed. I live in Baton Rouge and I see them every chance I get.
