Heads on Sticks
A pure product of the vibrant and eclectic music scene of Raleigh, NC, David Mueller grew up listening to the local “weirdo” music of Erectus Monotone, Shiny Beast, C.O.C., Orifice, and Vanilla Trainwreck rather than the paisley/indie/alt-country underground for which the area is best-known. This might begin to account for the fact that Phantasm in Tutu — the long-awaited debut LP by Mueller’s Heads on Sticks — is an astonishing first record by a band that sounds like nothing else. Like Brian Eno, Arthur Russell, Madlib, Massive Attack or the 13th Floor Elevators, Heads on Sticks subverts the limitations and very notion of genre, opening hidden doors in a crowded house and finding a lux rooms nobody knew existed.
