Psychedelic sisters Taraka and Nimai Larson (AKA Prince Rama) reached the pinnacle of their otherworldly sound with last year’s Trust Now. For their next album, Top Ten Hits of the End of the World, the duo is tackling a far different world by recasting themselves as 10 fictional pop bands destroyed by the recent(?!) apocalypse. Think Fucked Up’s David’s Town compilation, but with more of an emphasis on the End Times. Recorded with Tim Koh in Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti’s studio, the LP features songs like “Blade of Austerity”, “Radhamadhava”, and the aptly-titled “So Destroyed” by bands named Guns of Dubai, Taohaus, Nu Fighters, and Hyparxia. The album apparently furthers the band’s way-out sound, and samples from “cosmic disco, motorcycle rock, new-wave grunge, tribal goth, Arabic pop, and ghost-modern glam,” according to the a press release.
“Top Ten Hits of the End of the World isn’t just a pop album, it’s a retrospective requiem of all pop albums ever made. Nothing like this has ever been attempted by a single band, and its residual echoes will continue to haunt this world and the next.”
