Beech Creeps – “Arm Of The T-Rex”
What would it sound like if a T-Rex diverted all its predatory energy away from stalking other, smaller dinosaurs through Jurassic Park and instead took up electric guitar? Probably something like Beech Creeps, a Brooklyn amalgam of members from People Get Ready, Yeasayer, Pterodactyl (yeah, another dinosaur cameo) and Knyfe Hyts. Vocalist Mark Shue howls in an out-of-body frenzy over crawling, distorted guitar that inches along, destroying everything in its path like magma flow. “Arm Of The T-Rex” is on Beech Creeps’ self-titled debut album, which was recorded in the Brooklyn venue Secret Project Robot by producer Jonathan Schenke. Schenke has worked with the similarly noisy Parquet Courts and the comparably precise PC Music, and he’s honed the sound of their grimy aggression into a fine point. Let it slice into you.
