An Albatross

Loud, with scattered nudity and unconsciousness

Everybody make some noise: An Albatross makes a mesmerizing mess of music.
Everybody make some noise: An Albatross makes a mesmerizing mess of music.

Spazzy art-punks An Albatross make slobbering electro-noise terrorists The Locust look like the Backstreet Boys. The Philadelphia group's 2003 EP We Are the Lazer Viking contains 11 songs -- or fragments, since the longest tune doesn't even crack a minute and a half -- which speed by in a blur of barking screams, militant drumbeats, incoherent guitar shredding and surprisingly cheerful Farfisa organ burbles. Look for a new An Albatross record early this year, but get a sneak preview of the studio madness by partaking of the band's chaotic live experience: Vocalist Edward Gieda III ended up nude and unconscious during the band's debut 1999 live gig.
