Helen Kelter Skelter – Guud, Minding

The name Helen Kelter Skelter may call to mind a visionless disarray, but the Oklahoma band’s sophomore full-length, Melter, is anything but. Set to be released January 19, The aptly named album showcases what H/K/S does best—-a relentless fusion of everything good about rock ‘n’ roll. There are vintage organ flourishes over frenetic bass lines. Vocals delivered with glam rock swagger over subtle and intricate guitar work. Droning loops, pulsing beats and a confident pop sensibility that ties together what, in less skilled hands, could’ve been disparate parts. Melter nods to the band’s psychedelic tendencies and pushes forward Helen Kelter Skelter’s singular gifts: immense technical skill and willingness to experiment in service to the song.
