Born in the kitchen of some stranger's house and conceived of over many bowls of pasta and lentils, Chips for Dinner is the gurgling brain child of New York's weirdest. PALBERTA and NO ONE AND THE SOMEBODIES (NOATS) feel right at home together, joyously dishing out sonic absurdities and displaying a clear mutual influence on each other's work. Four brothers from Westchester County and three thick-as-thieves friends living in the Hudson Valley have concocted a real musical treat for all lovers of the playful and strange. The NOATS side of Chips is their first new music in 3 years, and these four tracks feel appropriately triumphant. Equally unhinged and anthemic, they deliver healthy doses of guitar—induced frenzy and and bizarrely gorgeous melodies, offering an accurate spectrum of the NOATS sound. Palberta continue to pave their own lane with explosive originality. They taunt, tease and tear through these six tracks, masterfully recorded by OSR tapes founder ZACH PHILLIPS. As a full package, Chips For Dinner sounds like a celebration of all the quirks that exist within a tight knit friendship, a testament to post-rehearsal snack sessions, and a record that is as fun to listen to as it surely was to make.
