The latest in the continuing posts of many many things I picked up earlier this month. Telekov’s “e.p.” came from either Disk Union or Enban in Tokyo; I forget which. The five songs, 21 minutes, cover a weird range of “alternative” sounds, whatever that might mean. “Just Say Pretty” is an odd and interesting conglomeration of skittery guitar, piano, and jerky drums; “Telekov Rap” is what it says, and oddly enough the “rap” is in English. Not the high point on the EP, let’s say. “P&G” is crude pop with simple drums and guitar, and vocals that veer from sort-of spoken on the verses to a nicely-done sung chorus. “Junk Food” is a sharp, jittering guitar-drum song that made me think of an instrumental Fall; and “I.A.P.F.P.” goes from a weird navel-gazing pop strum to a berserk vocal breakdown and back again. Hard to know what to make of it. Fun, weird stuff. No info other than titles here so I can’t tell you who’s in it or how many people are involved. Check out the label website at www.nononsenserecords.com, though there isn’t really any info there either.
