Lab Overview

"Be cool. The fuzz is your cuzz." Once said the Watts police officer to the grizzled scrapyard dealer who wore a mottled maroon cardigan. Edan has become a fuzz farmer. It's all over his beats, his head and his toadstools. Humble Magnificent has become Humboldt Magus, using psych rock fuzz and distortion as sequence passages. An interlude that's a minute and a half feels like a small piece of a 40 minute epic. Tomorrow never blows. On "Making Planets," Mr. Lif gets all Yog Sothoth on that ass, talking about worms leaking out of your orifices. And he makes orifices rhyme with "sort-of-vicious." Lif's favorite color is the colour out of space. Edan's favorite color is math. Mine is jabberwocky. There's also a great part about a piece of dog shit growing wings and taking off - as things with wings tend to do. Percee P makes a nice cameo on "Torture Chamber," as do the Dells and the Bob Seger System. "Promised Land" is mad cosmic with strings, but not in a corny indie rap way. This also has the previous single "Fumbling Over Words That Rhyme," "The Science Of Two" with Insight, and 6 others. It's one hell of a hairy elf of an album.
