Quintron and Miss Pussycat “Swamp Tech”

Published in Blog Archive, Mills Record Co.. Tags: .

The distance between physically experiencing live music and attempting to replicate that same energy force on a recording is as prominent with Quintron & Miss Pussycat as it very well might be with any other musicians on the planet. To soak up the rotating bliss of Quintron’s Drum Buddy invention, or dance in time with the maraca-shaking Miss Pussycat is to baptize yourself in a waist-deep stream of performance art, only to re-emerge from the mysterious bog cleansed and reinvigorated. If there were a recorded track that remotely offers an aural experience similar to this however, it’s “Swamp Buggy Badass,” where an electric pulse invites participation in the badass call-and-response, only to be later glazed over by a thick layer of satisfying Louisiana swagger. As good as any other Swamp Tech track, it represents the duo’s playful and unhinged balance between shtick and soul: the driving force behind what makes their live shows as enjoyable as they are.
