What if John Carpenter kept up on new music? He’d be like, Why do all these bands play the keyboard like me but with the VHS tracking all fucked up and wobbly? And no one would be able to answer him with anything else except to let him know that it sounds awesome. This Birds & Batteries song is like watching Halloween on a bunch of cough syrup and then having a dizzy and slowed dance party at the end—it’s wildly unsettling and makes us feel kind of nauseous in a good way.
