Sometimes instead of composing music about serious issues that globally struck upon humankind on a regular basis, musicians feel an urge to record music about hilarious stuff that no one would ever think. Captain Frederickson is one of those groups focusing on the humorous side of life, but still, the group supports charities with their latest album. That’s a double win in my book. Instead of being repetitious and sounding like the millions of other groups out there, this Buffalo, New York-based group embraces various genres in order to spice things up a little bit more. Their most-advanced recording showcases a step further from their previous works. Absolute Disaster represents their second full-length album that encapsulates all the vital elements of the underground music scene but also incorporates some experimental maneuvers.
Captain Frederickson released series of singles such as Toast Tuesday, Marchin’ Up Six, We Are XFL, Ben Stokes, Ant And Dec Break America, and a debut full-length album named Heel Heat. Absolute Disaster carries twelve experimental numbers, completely loaded with everything you could imagine. Captain Frederickson explores millions of genres at once, and their music is difficult to be defined by a singular genre. You’ll notice elements of chiptune, glitch, lo-fi, industrial, experimental, electro, noise, noise rock, garage rock, alternative rock, hard rock, and punk rock. Captain Frederickson unquestionably appears as glitchy 8-bit experimental electronica with noise rock-infused foundations. Nevertheless, the group stacks up even more ingredients, samples, melodies, and noises along the way.
This material will be right up the alley to the admirers of profoundly experimental music who’re strictly roaming around avant-garde music waters. However, Absolute Disaster is quite entertaining, detailed, colorful material that will suit anyone curious how alternative rock spoiled by the glitchy chiptune maneuvers might sound. The band resembles some experimental noise acts I’ve stumbled upon throughout the years, but Captain Frederickson sounds more exciting, delicate, and unique. Absolute Disaster is available at streaming services, such as
Spotify and Bandcamp. Head over to your preferred streaming service and give it a listen.
