Will Scott – …recordings

From somewhere in the ether emerged this double bag of musical sketches, riffs, rhythms, instrumental ramblings, vocal showcases, and guest appearances, all organized and released under the guiding light of Will Scott. A well known member in the rogues gallery of Edmonton’s wave of garage-scuzz (including The Mitts and Pigeon Breeders), with this collection, Will delves into what I can only describe as a musical jungle. Disc One–the “stand alone album”–starts with a drum-n-vox groove, goes into a Greek bazouki theme of some sort, layers on some semi-funk flavours, adds more layers of instruments and vocal ooohs, low-fi scratchy noises, and eventually, with “Basement I”, arriving at the heart of darkness in a full-blown noisecapade. The standouts for me have to be “The Saga Continues,” what could easily become a garage-gaze standard, and Disc Two’s delightfully sub-Beck effort at white guy rap from “Old Man Johnson”. Truly, this collection is more than can be fairly assessed by myself or anyone else in such a short time, with such a sparse word count. Grab your machete, why don’t you, and make your own foray into the musical jungle.
