RANGERS

Reconsider Lounge

Label: NOT NOT FUN RECORDS

Format: LP

Out of stock

Trans-american Joe Knight recently caravanned his custom duffel bags of woozy jukebox esoterica from the Bay to the plains of central Texas but, before and during so, crafted and released the double-volume Scrap collection for multifaceted Midwestern organization, Bezoar Formations. "Reconsider Lounge" distills a portion of this material into different arrangements, intercut with an assortment of unreleased curiosities and classics, comprising an essentially new album in the instrumental fantasy radio canon Rangers reigns so uniquely at.

Song modalities station-switch from piece to piece, spanning lonesome new wave garage (“Lauderdale Saints”), dreadlocked psych (“Clown Prince”), monorail zoo tour DVD themes (“ETV”), tight-wired Television-lensed guitar heroics (“Safety Goggles”), out across the endless airwaves. The logic of Knight’s pack-rat electric collages culture-jam as much as flow, chasing sparks, exposing irrelevancies and connective tissues. Fissured fragments of rock mythology, obscurely realized, again and again. Reconsider. Lounge. Black vinyl in buffalo relic jackets designed by Suzanne Pfutzenreuter. Mastered by Brian Pyle.
