Gang Gang Dance God‘s Money
- Words: Jesse Serwer
- Label: Social Registry
If Fat Albert‘s Junkyard Band were eccentric Brooklyn indies acting on the impulses of an extensive world music collection, they might make a record like God‘s Money in 2005. Recorded at Junkyard Audio Salvage-a self-explanatory playground for analogophiles in Greenpoint-GGD allegedly made use of every noise-making device they could find during the year-long recording of their second LP. The result is a worldly soundclash of the "only in New York" variety; a beautiful/ugly mishmash of tribal drums, Middle Eastern rhythms, Baltic new wave, unconfined psychedelic experimentalism, and vocalist Lizzie Bougatsos‘ sometimes beautiful, sometimes horrifically off-putting chirps. While it often seems like a magic ride to nowhere, the net result nonetheless feels earth-shatteringly profound.
