Writhing Squares - Balloon To The Moon

There's something weirdly anachronistic about Writhing Squares. The Philadelphia space rock duo of Daniel Provenzano (bass) and Kevin Nickles (sax, vocals) add earsplitting keyboards to the backbone of their sound, a colossally cheap sounding drum machine. That it works is a testament to their ability to carry a great tune, and that's never better than on the lengthy Balloon To The Moon from their 2016 release In The Void Above. Actually, to call it just one tune would be selling this short, as Nickles proves every time he embarks on another long melodic line. Raw and restlessly inventive.
