Tobacco | Streaker (ft. Notrabel)
“… BUT IF YOU FEEL LIKE SOMEONE’S COMING!!!” Bam. That’s my favorite part of the noise assault called “Streaker”, a track off Tobacco’s upcoming release, “Ultima II Massage”. That verse follows about two minutes after the warped opening lyrics repeated in robot-voice: “Ride, ride, ride motherfucker ride.” The phrase is so elongated and distorted it can sound like the word “writhe” is being sung, which I seem to prefer, the more I listen to the song. It’s sludgy, dark, twisted and fun. It’s a fantastic cut from the Pennsylvania artist, mixing hints of trance, club beat aesthetics with Sleigh Bells’ penchant for blasting speakers into the red and My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult’s buzzy electronic weirdness. You can pre-order the record via Ghostly International. Note: Lyrics above are unofficial. — David D. Robbins Jr.
