Weekly Release Spotlight: Fergus & Geronimo

Posted on 8/27/2012


Fergus & Geronimo
Funky Was the State of Affairs

[Hardly Art]

Garage rockers Jason Kelly and Andrew Savage of Fergus & Geronimo, who hail from Denton Texas and now reside in Brooklyn, have recently dropped their sophomore LP Funky Was the State of Affairs on the Seattle based label Hardly Art. Funky is a conceptual album with running commentary from slacker aliens on the conditions of planet Earth. The album is made up of a collection of short, witty tracks that dive into weird-o intergalactic social commentary bordering on the line of satire, only adding to the band’s originality.

By way of high-energy post-punk jams, comic lyrics and spoken-word skits, Fergus & Geronimo piece together a dystopian sci-fi future. Throughout the album, the duo experiments with genre-hopping -- roaming through indie rock, psych, jazz and synth-pop. A few of the most prominent tracks include “Roman Tick” with its quirky wordplay, “Off the Map” which features a rad bassline, and the dancy number “Marky Move.”

The quirky energy, inventive nature and catchy-as-hell songs are never boring. The concept of the work requires little interpretation, yet succeeds in stimulating ever-entertaining conspiracy theories. Funky Was the State of Affairs is a trip you don’t want to miss, folks.
