Electric Bird Noise has developed a reputation for a guitar-driven, experimental and atmospheric sound. But on the band’s latest album, Desert Jelly, which Silber Records released a couple of weeks ago, the band defies expectations with an album devoted to synths and New Wave. 

“Dune Buggy” is the first track off the new album and in some way it reminds me a little bit of prog rock and a bit of a band like the Big Sleep. In any case, the track has a muscular buzzing, almost drone-like funk – it’s not a typical funk you’d expect but it comes from weird angles.
