A drone, in more ways than one, starts this long player with the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and then mellows out into a caressing magenta mushroom cloud on the horizon as surfers on acid go about their daily business. Spiritualised, Stereolab and the Silver Apples all pay a visit at various points throughout with polyphonic walls of sound dusted over with mangled keys and vocals from an arrogant angel.
Then, first single ‘Moped’ zooms along and shoves a turquoise-handled feather duster in your face as you’re trying to save your family from a psycho doing the rounds in IKEA but all you really want to do is smash the place up as well. Humbled by the experience of seeing everything you thought was right and modern crumble before your very eyes The Drop has you exactly where Pinkunoizu want you to be on their Swollen Map.
After smashing the modern world to bits it’s time to set fire to things and skip along to Pyromancer on your way to a Canned Heat gig somewhere in the middle of nowhere and re-join Abby Hoffman’s surfers for a final rock n’ roll stomp in Tin Can Valley. And now that mushroom cloud has settled down you can get on with your life, first, in orchestral opiate bliss, and then chewing the hay and strumming your guitar as you reach the end of The Drop!
