Tracking the Hydroplane

3d5spd

If I hadn’t recently heard the new Flaming Lips, the similarities between Tracking the Hydroplane and The Soft Bulleting wouldn’t be as apparent. As it is, I’m pleasantly surprised to hear some more intelligent bizzarro-pop. 3d5spd could pledge allegiance to the math rock flag, the Zappa flag and the jazz-band-reject flag, but they probably haven’t recited any doggerel like that in some time. The “Black Water Static” mix of “Alpha Jerk” stands out, both for its more electronic approach and attractively disinterested melody. Very inter-est-ing.
