Skull Diver mines new sonic depths and builds a beautifully executed sophomore album.
Papi Fimbres and Shana Lindbeck are gifts that keep on giving to the Portland music scene, appearing to us in many different forms and bringing us a variety of sounds. Sometimes in the cumbia outfit known as Orquestra Pacifico Tropical, other times as part of punk group Bitch’n or psych rock trio Mascaras, just to name a few. This time around, however, the married duo has beamed down as Dreckig, whose latest album Space in Time/Time in Space is Pac-Man meets FannyPack with Manu Chao along for the ride. It’s an electronic, bilingual journey through the strobe-lit smoke-machine haze of, well, time and space.
Bringing a little bit of everything to the table, Space in Time/Time in Space manages to be experimental, chill and funky while maintaining a polished, layered sound. Although playful and sometimes nerdy, like it could be part of the soundtrack to Zardoz, Dreckig is a mature step forward for both Lindbeck and Fimbres, who show us with this album that there is a future–and yes–there is room for everyone. Dreckig celebrate their album release with a show at Bunk Bar on November 3 with an all-POC lineup featuring Amenta Abioto and Brown Calculus.
