Interview with DC Area Deli Artist of the Month Various Eggs

"I deliberately made a scattered and ornery record with a lot of unfriendly choices. The simple piano ballad blows apart into a cacophony. The prettier songs are paired next to harsh avant-garde instrumental interludes. Imperfections were left in the performance to keep it human. The subject matter is consistently dark…"

[Cool looking flyer for Sundays show, made by one of the folks from Music Bones, I think]Various Eggs are bringing their scattered brand of art rock to the Velvet Lounge this Sunday. They’ll be trying out a new song or two that they have been working on since the November 2013 release of their first mini-album, “Don’t Expect Much From Others.” And, of course, they’ll be doing some songs from that release as well.
When Various Eggs set out to make “Don’t Expect Much From Others,” they wanted to make a record that reflected their wide range of influences. You can pick up on their love of shoegaze, of stoner doom metal, of new wave romanticism, of avant-garde classical, and of post punk in the brief seven tracks on the album. In reviews, the songs have been described as everything from “acoustic baubles” to “nightmarish freak outs.” Despite the wide sonic canvas on which the songs are painted, they are all united by a theme of disappointment, which precipitated the title “Don’t Expect Much From Others.” Some reviews have guessed that the album is a break-up record, but Various Eggs will let us decide that on our own.
Since the release of “Don’t Expect Much From Others,” Various Eggs have been plugging away at recording new songs. This weekend will be the first time they have been aired. If you haven’t checked out “Don’t Expect Much From Others” it is available at http://variouseggs.bandcamp.com/.
Joining them on Sunday is an excitingly diverse lineup which includes the minimal blues rock drum/guitar duo Music Bones and the Thai electro/rock stylings of Skyline & Anti Band.

…spraying cake batter about the kitchen while screaming vulgarities…

With their review for the new DIE ANTWOORD album, AllMusic has set the bar for writing music reviews that color outside the lines . Some choice highlights from the review:

"Primal scream therapy is fine, but there are days when dropping trousers, turning up the rave music to a deafening levels, and spraying cake batter about the kitchen while screaming vulgarities in the Afrikaans language is the only solution.”

"Coming on strong with that quirky, kewpie doll hook from singer Yo-Landi Vi$$er and those wonderfully dumb, wonderfully wicked lyrics from rapper Ninja, the opening "Ugly Boy" is the first sign that the drugs are all good on the South African duo’s/electro-freakshow’s third album."
