Synopsis

Amazon.com
With apologies to Sun Ra, this North Dakota-bred power duo provides ample evidence that bass is the place. Using nothing more than a hyper-charged bass guitar and a thoroughly sternum-shattering drumkit, surname-free pals Mike and Dan plumb the depths of the sonic spectrum without sacrificing an iota of song structure (often a casualty on the duo's previous work). If you can imagine an even more pared-down version of the Melvins--albeit one with more of a pop flair--you'll have a notion of what goes on under the roof of this 'Silo. For those keeping score at home, Beat Happening mainman Calvin Johnson clocks in to provide appropriately low-end vocals on the title track.--David Sprague

(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you've never heard of Godheadsilo, well then you probably wouldn't be reading this. So you can relate when I say that listening to this album is like having a motorcross run bacwards through your lower intestines...stopping only for a break to chew on the back of your frontal cortex. Equal parts gut and head, that is. Be warned, if you've never owned a bmx bike, you'll only be halfway there with these guys....they have a way of twisting the handlebars at the right moment...screaming off through the grimy territory that is the punk side of Olympia. And yes, there are only two of them, not forty. A Drummer (a gross understatement) and a bassist... (boom!)....what more do you need really?"
