"Animal Bodies gets creepy on its limited-edition analogue release"

Animal Bodies (Needs More Ram)

Considering its fixation on ghostly moans and spooked-out synth lines, it’s fitting that Animal Bodies released its new cassette at the Waldorf’s grand opening/Halloween costume party last weekend. And if you managed to get a copy of the limited-edition analogue release, you can now get down to the group’s spectral sounds all year long.

Pretty much every cut on the collection will creep you out a bit. The opener, “Thought and Consequence”, is a full-throttle freak-out that tops a galloping drum-machine beat with menacing Middle Eastern keyboard lines and guitarist Natasha Reich’s eerie punk crunch. “Jungle Cathedral” finds her crooning seductively about wild animals atop a slinking bass line and mechanical percussion loops that wouldn’t sound out of place on an early Sisters of Mercy single.

While “Tomb Table Testimony” and “Jackie Says (Remix)” tread along the lines of early-’80s goth pop, the B-side of the cassette finds Animal Bodies trying its luck with even more unsettling sounds. “Some Evil…”, for instance, is a four-minute audio collage of haunted howls, whip cracks, and crank calls that plays out like the soundtrack to a Hell House. Whether it’s through sombre goth rock or via uncomfortable sonic experimentation, Animal Bodies are ready to freak you out. - The Georgia Straight
