First Listen- Margot & The Nuclear So and So’s ‘Slingshot To Heaven”

April 16th, 2014 by Tori Holder

Form really seems to inform function on Margot & The Nuclear So and So’s Slingshot to Heaven, recorded analog in their own studio. Decidedly intimate and hand-hewn, it definitely plays softer than previous albums, but we still get our share of painting teeth green and conversations with aliens. “Long Legged Blonde Memphis crackles with the opening “you’re the apple of my eye, let’s be a pair” (we like our food puns) and builds a steady anticipation in every verse. There are more standout characters and notable tracks that hold the definite stamp of their intricately raw sound while honing in on the more emotive and heartfelt elements than the fanciful and creepy. “When You’re Gone” gnaws with an optimistic ache that gives Wilco’s “Hate It Here” a definite run for it’s money as the number one milling-about-the-house-lonely song, and “Wedding Song” plays up to its title. “Los Angeles” listens wishful and has the perfect sound to lull you into summer wanderlust in a way that is sincere and Angeleno-approved. For those unfamiliar, the whole thing might come across as imaginative bordering on disturbed, but to wrongly appropriate “Lazy” “I love you so who cares… if we’re crazy”. Steam it now before the album comes out next week from the band’s soundcloud .
