next up is an epic, blipped-out, woozy, electro track, Pirahna Park from Auckland-based lap-bop experimentalist Moppy {Thom Burton of Wilberforces et the defunct Yokel Ono} off his debut album "Mokai" (2011).

Pirahna Park is a warped, lo-fi, industrial-tinged, electro anthem for misspent youth, it is also a fond word play certain geographically challenged people won't get, so for those of you who haven't had the pleasure of having lived in Hamilton, or stumbling through Parana park on your way home from town on a Friday night then you will have no idea. many a school kid with an over-active imagination has mixed up the spelling of Parana park, et one can assume that Burton never shook this {miss}connection, et there is a distinct possibility he did his fair share of stumbling/tripping in said park during his angsty formative years et thought it would be cool to one day name a song after it, so in many ways the song acts as a kind of flashback, a soundscape of said stumbling/tripped-out experiences, welcome to Pirahna Park in mind-bending 3D! be afraid!

MP3: Pirahna Park

you can purchase the "Mokai" album digitally online from Moppy's bandcamp, you can have a listen before you buy, apparently Arcade Recordings will be releasing a limited number of cdr's et cassette copies, which will be available from random Moppy shows et possibly online somewhere or other, i'll keep you posted when i find out more info.
