meercaz Meercaz (CD, £12.50)label: Gulcher
This stuff has white hot guitar shreddage in psychedelically enhanced overloads... MEERCAZ is MOZZLEY M. (aka MUZZ, MUSLIM DELGADO) of Portland, Oregon. Mozz sings and plays guitar (plus keyboards and bass). He's assisted on his debut by JASON DOLLAR, MATT, JEN STEFANICK (sic), CLAY SILVA, JESSE and MAURA ARRAJ. The Meercaz sound is hard to pin down, which is pretty bitchin' considering the fact that it's shameless rock. The production is simple yet experimental. The approach is primitive but spacey, simultaneously "retro" and "futuristic" without batting an eye. It's aggressive guitar music that's "punk" in its DIY manic quality, but with an aesthetic that's much closer to the late 60s and early 70s.
