Delivering genre-agnostic, sampledelic bombast, Portland’s Big Pauper (formerly Panzah Zandahz of Radiohead mashup fame) leaves no media unraided for his debut LP. Tripping among big downtempo beats, B-movie dialog, and waves of distortion you’ll find a sophisticated sense of melody that can reference 60s garage and soft rock with equal aplomb. A spacey, glitchy ride that sounds like someone flipping AM radio channels while a sci-fi double feature plays at the drive-in.
