CREAMY WATER QUIZ is an experimental psychedelic electronic rock duo from Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA.
Their album "Flojo, Loco y Enigmático" is a brand new 2009 production and strongly recommended!
"Experimental, free-form, lo-fi, ambient-electro-rock
improvisations performed by Ryan 'Delano' Davis and Adam
'Miracle Kitty' Walker.
Recorded during and for this century. All frequencies captured and mixed on 8-track analog, then edited and mixed again digitally.
Modus Operandi - loose, crazy and enigmatic
Used - guitars, bass, drum machines, samplers, synths, effects
Not used - midi, practice, sobriety or a plan
Creamy Water Quiz cherish confusion, understand the unusual, and worship the warped.
Combining their individual successes with everything from rock to field recordings to electronic music, this Kalamazoo, Michigan
duo formed in the mid '90s as an experimental outlet. CWQ is an
antidote for the planned and an escape from coherency. Utilizing
classic synths, ancient midi-less drum machines, cheap guitars,
even cheaper basses, samplers, and far too many effects, they
create exploratory, ambient-electro-rock improvisations.
With a fee-from and lo-fi approach to sound, they layer duo-jams haphazardly on 8-track. All frequencies captured and mixed on
analog, then edited and mixed again digitally. The result is a
moody and meandering sonic catharsis." (Band info)
I think this is a pretty good description; I find traces of THE ORB or APHEX TWIN and the other usual suspects...
Otherwise I've got nothing more to add - except that I find myself listening again and again to this fantastic
recording. Strongly recommended!Enjoy!
