Fist pump to Mike Bailey for the heads up. More about Bee Thousand from Stereogum...
From "Hardcore UFO's" through "You're Not An Airplane," Pollard's melodic sense, immediate hooks, and catchy cut-up lyricism coupled with Tobin Sprout & Co's dead-on contributions are uncanny, moving, ecstatic, and ultimately transformative. Flipping between Kinks-esque noise, post-Syd-Barrett nuggets, skeletal psychedelia bursts, cassette-only garage pop, and Who-meets-hiss balladry, Bee Thousand is a rich pop kaleidoscope, a 36-minute patchwork that feels like a Beatles bootleg folding in on itself, or like surfing the radio dial and finding one AM hit after another.
Classic and amazing record. Buy it right away if you don't have it. Which you should.
