Brown Whörnet Radio CD: Radio Just Got Better
by Alfred Burychka || Author's Links
If you haven't
guessed it from the name, the first thing to learn about the Austinian
band Brown Whörnet is that playfulness is as central to their music
as flapping wings is to flying. The Radio CD delivers one pungent punch
after another, crushing the silences between songs with snazzy snippets
from their own bag of ethereal buffoonery and crushing the songs themselves
with silences. I guess a simpler way to put it would be to say that Brown
Whörnet always goes for the unexpected, and scores consistently,
even when you've learned to expect it. Yes, even the umpteenth time around,
you would still stumble across some musical or verbal event that you missed
the previous times, and it will come as a surprise.
