Super Squid Releases Debut Album, “Surf Party”

Bookmark and Share
Website: http://www.mondotunes.com
Super Squid is one of those acts that’s hard to pin down. They don’t have a signature sound, so much as a signature attitude. Occasionally melodic and ethereal, occasionally hard-edged and gritty, the only consistent truth behind Super Squid is that they’re always weird – and joyously so.

“Super Squid is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Scott J. Breaud and his wife Carolyn Breaud. What started as a home project grew into a full production experimental rock band. Born from boredom of cookie cutter bands, Super Squid is an attempt to bring back musical purity. The band’s motto: no riff is off limits. Super Squid’s numerous musical styles represent the eclectic tastes of the members. Drawing from 70’s prog to 80’s punk, from Abba to Zappa, Super Squid settles into an approachable avant-garde rock.”

The opening salvo in their war against bland music is “Surf Party,” an album that, like the band, defies easy categorization.

The title track of the album, “Super Squid Surf Party” is airy, twinkling, and vaguely mystical, as if the Go-Go’s and the Flaming Lips had a love child and fed it nothing but tabs of X.

Hot on the heels of the shimmery sweetness of “Super Squid Surf Party” comes “Submersive War,” a roiling, driven-by-madness rock song that shakes you out of your reverie in a hurry.

That’s the way “Surf Party” goes. Each track is its own journey – with its own rules, and no outside limitations to what might spring from the minds of Super Squids’ creative geniuses.

Elements of Marilyn Manson, Smashing Pumpkins, Tom Waits, and anything else that strikes their fancy is all grist for their every-changing mill, creating a sonic tapestry that’s infinitely variable and never predictable.

The band sums it up with just a few words. “Forget the formats. Forget the formulas. Remember the fun. Remember the art.” Lucky for us, that’s exactly what Super Squid has done.
