Fake Brain play a style of music that lies between weirdo pop and geek rock - simultaneously invoking such inspirations as early Wire, The Violent Femmes, Robyn Hitchcock, and Pink Floyd.
Disturbed noise would be a good description, only it is much more than noise: it''s punk, it''s psychedelic psychobilly, it''s art grunge.
The lyrics are pretty strange, with topics ranging from half dead step-granddaughters to reoccurring packages to unseemly bodily secretions.
This band is weird, but they play well and when they use lines like a beaver giving a dam, you just have to sit back and smile.
On their debut album, So Glad You Came, Fake Brain presents a 14-song cycle that is like a slapstick version of Chairs Missing: verbally intricate songs that each occupy their own niche of sound and style and create a specific musical feeling, whether it be a linear crisp punk trajectory (up on two wheels), hallucinatory psychodrama (half-murdered step-granddaughter), off-kilter pronouncements of lust (juices, so glad you came), or their own warped idea of a radio pop sing-along (your drunk wife).
The band recorded and mixed the album themselves in their tiny, windowless Brooklyn studio, losing track of time and all sense of proportion and perspective.
