Seattle, Washington's Lars Finberg is unstoppable and responsible for some of the best music blasting out of the underground at the moment. Lars structures the A-Frames' post-apocalyptic pop world where he handles drum duties. Then there's the diabolical Dipers, where he throws down that lo-fi noisy rumble of burning trash and car-wreck rock wiping the shit blood all over your blue suede shoes. But his main vehicle, The Intelligence, combines the best of all worlds in a wonderland of sonic horizons, poppy dance field rock, and if ya have time to think, brilliant lyrics. Intelligence utilize melodic acoustic guitars with wire-cutting electric riffs, crushed keyboards, jumping jack fun drums and singalong vocal melodies. The recording sounds like they crawl inside a beat-up trashcan to bang out the hits while tumbling down a granite mountain covered in volcanic ash.   Their debut album, Boredom and Terror, was first released on CD by Omnibus Records and later on LP by Narnack. It featured thirteen perfectly crafted songs that were created by Lars on his home recording unit. Icky Baby, their much anticipated follow up, was recorded with a full band on selected tracks and mixed in with Finberg's usual demented home recordings. The result is a much more aggressive Intelligence than heard previously-- a sound much closer to the band's live performances than their debut album. Be prepared to have your mind blown!
