Ball of Wax 50 Songs: Screens – “Delridge”

I’ve been writing about music in some form another for about 20 years now, and I’ve never before had the occasion to use the phrase “psychedelic electro-funk,” but here we are. Seattle’s super inventive and fun Screens‘ “Delridge” (recorded at this year’s Northwest Psych Fest at the Sunset) is over eight minutes of heady psychedelic electro-funk. It’s at times proggy, then soaring like arena rock, then deeply funky like a band playing a Psych festival would rarely (almost never?) be. The parts are jammy but still tight, following a certain logic or shared vibe that keeps it all together. This is really ambitious and really fun and enjoyable – bravo Screens! Be sure to check them out at the Ball of Wax volume 50 release show on December 15 at the Lo Fi.
