Sheesh. Long time
since we (or anyone) opened a new Helios Creed LP. But here is Deep
Blue Love Vacuum (Noiseville), which fills not one, but two LPs. Anyone
who ever loved his earlier solo slop, or his time in the classic period
of Chrome, should have their drool nozzles well tweaked by this.
Veering between thick cosmic haze-gestures and thug-metal raunch, the
sound is a beautiful distorted mess. With guest vocals by Fabienne
Shine (esp. notable on the Velvets cover) and a pimp-solid bottom, this
is one of the best drug warps to spew past us in a while.
