Characteristics - Warehouse 1018

The US underground is something that I used to post about often, but have recently drifted away from. Cassida Pax, Drew Price's Bermuda Triangle and Tonetta all featured in the early days of the blog, but have since been overwhelmed by a focus on African music and vintage European pop. So here is Marty Roy, nom de plume Characteristics, a home-recording artist from Detroit. This track, 'Warehouse 1018', is a noisy cut of boombox pop, using distorted synths, deadbeat vocals and psychedelic guitar reminiscent of bands like Dungen.

Label: self-released
Year: 2013
Genre: Garage, Psychedelia, Noise Pop
