On our last excursion to Good Records, our friend C.J. convinced us to buy Skeletons and The Kings Of All Cities’ Lucas by describing it as “Albert Ayler meets Prince.” The Skeletons collective (who released Git in 2005) have also drawn comparisons to Can, Sonic Youth, and Boyz II Men (seriously). The LP cover is about the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen, and it comes pressed on a hideous gray vinyl. All that aside, we’ve listened to this, the disjointed, beautiful album opener, maybe 100 times over the last couple of days (give or take). It sort of meanders aimlessly along for the first 2 minutes, but all of those seemingly ridiculous comparisons begin to make sense after that.
