A1Beat Fiend

His A-side, Beat Fiend, is right on the nose! A sole drummer in a transcendental musical village warmly welcomes the listener followed by several hollow rolling drums as pied piper ravels and whirls through the village. Pressure and tension build up through various woodwinds and percussion as instrument-armed villagers pour out into empty alleys in synchronized dance motions spreading revolutionary joy throughout the ceremonial voyage. Listen closely, a single faded hip-hop lyricist leads the people to a full blown dance party. This track effectively plays the puppeteer to anyone listening; manipulating and leaving no limbs to rest. The B-side, Amphibian, sets a more tragic and mellow tone. Rolling keyboards and flaring rockets soar through this track creating a virtual battle ground of disturbed vocals and twisted souls.
