SIMGE Stream: Killer Waves – Scott Hall Acid House

Killer Waves

Sometimes you get exactly what you ask for. Sometimes you don’t even realize that what you were asking for was a sharp boot straight to the keister.

After sending out a general “I’m bored” blast on the SIMGE Facebook page I was happy to receive several submissions from old friends and new. The most jarring, immediate, grab-you-by-the-throat thing to appear comes courtesy of Edison noise-punk outfit Killer Waves in the form of Scott Hall Acid House.

Spanning five blitzkrieg bombing tracks, Scott Hall Acid House is a mighty, no fucks given, but all fucks effort showcase of an aesthetic sorely missed in the local scene. From the outset, in “Cosmic Rays, Everyday”, the hard charging trio exudes a fury with chants of “I don’t want to live like this!” set against a mind numbing, psych-punk swirl. Loading up towards mid-EP instrumental “Break-In At The Batcave”, Killer Waves find that neck cracking happy place usually reserved for the likes of Lightning Bolt.

Seriously, when can I catch Killer Waves in a basement? I’m asking for a friend, and that friend is me.

If one particular track stands out as a ready to go, vinyl store sifting single it’s likely “Revenge Mask” which features detached vocals and a perfect backbeat construct. ScoMaguatt Hall Acid House draws to an all too quick close with “Magua”, which builds from a lurch someplace that Josh Homme might not find himself too uncomfortable in setting up residence.

Stream Scott Hall Acid House right now below. Do it. Do it now.
