Psychedelic, punk and jazz all blow chunks on each other in this new song and clip from Melbourne aliens Mangelwurzel. This track is easily the best thing they’ve done, a manic melting pot of horns, throttled guitar and vocals that shift as frequently as the winds of the Sahara.
“My House” is a true example of chaos being embraced for the better good – the result feels like Unknown Mortal Orchestra being waterboarded in Guantanamo.
The mania doesn’t stop at the music though; Mangelwurzel’s video is batshit crazy, as the Melbourne suburbs get the acid trip makeover. Fair warning – don’t engage with this clip unless you want everything else to suck shit by comparison.
Mangelwurzel make a rare Sydney appearance as part of Bad Day Out, along with TV Colours, Bearhug, Donny Benet and heaps more.
