One of LA/s outsider music heroes David Liebe Hart and his ventriloquist dummy Chip (who he treats as his son) has a new, all-too-brief 5-song EP that takes his usual flying saucer obsessions and gives it the DJ Screw technique, (minus the Purple Drank, one assumes). Apart from odes to aliens (including one who doesn't want him to look at porn), there's also "Nature," about his experiences on 4-H Club camping trips, in which Hart delivers this memorable lyric, in his warbly baritone:
"We rub sticks together to make fire/We had joy, and desire."
But you'll have to buy the release to hear it, as you only get a short preview on the EP's Bandcamp page:
David Liebe Hart & Chip The Black Boy gets Chopped & Screwed
I've never been a major fan of the chopped 'n 'screwed sound, but the results here perfectly suit Hart's weird world. The result is sharp music shot thru with hilarious strangeness. I've already listened to this one 3 times. Pass the purple drank, please..?
