Disco Doom – “Ex Teenager”

“Ex Teenager”, the latest from Switzerland’s Disco Doom, is effusive indie rock’s equivalent to an elbow in the face. With only a single warning breath, the song blasts in with guitars that sound like they could shatter Antarctic permafrost. A strange composite of LA lo-fi and prog-rock highbrow, “Ex Teenager” shifts itself swiftly from straightforward post-psych rocker to a wedge of somersaulting guitars that remind me of Microcastle-era Deerhunter. “Ex Teengaer” is a fast and fantastic combination of two different schools of rock music bombasticity, coming dangerously close to sounding like Ariel Pink being possessed by Syd Barrett.
