Man, Lord Pusswhip sure has been busy as of late. Last year he gave us Lord Pusswhip Is Dead and in the first three months of 2018 we’ve already been treated to two more releases – the previously reviewed cassette Stationz Ov The Puss and this seven-song 12″ on bbbbbb Records, The Hand of Glory.
The Hand of Glory arrived in my mailbox the other day with a stack of other recent bbbbbb records courtesy of my friends over at Reykjavik’s Lucky Records, and this is the first of the batch that I dropped the needle on. It’s a bit more uptempo than what I’m used to hearing from His Royal Pusswhipness, more suited to the dance floor than to drinking a whole bottle of codeine-infused cough medicine and drooling all over yourself on the couch. As always, Pusswhip hits you with all kinds of weird breaks and transitions and samples, never allowing you to get entirely comfortable. “Green House Living” is the most chill number, one more reminiscent of his work on Lord Pusswhip Is Dead.
You can digitally spin the title track on Soundcloud HERE if you like, but don’t say I didn’t warn you – it’s gonna get a little weird.
