Recorded by Warton Tiers (the man who engineered Sonic Youth's early records) and co- produced by Mark Robinson (the lead singer/songwriter of Unrest and Air Miami), Sing Along in Hebrew recalls all of the chaos of early Sonic Youth and Fall without any of the structure of songcraft (not that they are trying to emulate either of those bands). Sing Along in Hebrew is a sprawling mess of an album whose high points are a cover of Ultimate Spinach's "Ballad of the Hip Death Goddess" and the self-penned "Ghostgod." Sexual Milkshake boast clever song titles ("Love Bubbles are Gummy," "White Angst Octane," "Cave Bacon, Volume 3") that match the record's lavish packaging. This is the type of thing that will send archaeologists reeling if it is found 1,000 years from now by another civilization.
