GØGGS / Pre Strike Sweep
With their second album Pre Strike Sweep, GØGGS add a new level of primordial anxiety to their already catastrophic symphony. Recorded and mixed in 2017 and the beginning of 2018 by GØGGS guitarist and co-founder Ty Segall, Pre Strike Sweep explores the damaging affects of modern life before blowing them up one by one. Singer Chris Shaw uses terms like “space rinse” and “roadside surgery” to inform the listener that this is a strange and different trip, far and away from the Glendale Junkyard he romanticized in 2016, while bassist Michael Anderson and Charles Moothart (drums, guitar) provide a white-hot, pummeling rhythm to the rejuvenated GØGGS sound. In fact, all expectations brought on by GØGGS acclaimed debut are crushed into dust, revealing a new standard by which the GØGGS march thumps.
