Sweety Chicky Jam Progpunk like Cardiacs. Just completely different. Favorite track: Spider Heard.

I Have Four Names Objection: GT Ultra is 29 minutes and the LP was pressed at 33 1/3, so there was more than enough room for this track to fit on the single LP (~40 mins). Anyway, great song.

deadpaul GT Ultra is my #1 GT LP by far (as of 2021), it's one of my favorite LPs ever, it's perfect to me. When I saw that Spider Heard dropped, I must've listened to it over 60x that month. It sounds like it came from GT Ultra, but is unique in its own right. Also, it's incredible Live!❤️

coffeeguy08 More Guerilla Toss? Yes please. Continues the same sound as their last release with their distinctively haunting and upbeat vocals and interesting beats

ericsampson An infectious track, which sounds even more kickass live... Part of me wishes it was included on "GT Ultra", but I also appreciate it as a separate song/vibe entirely.

DFA’s favorite acid punk freaks Guerilla Toss grace us with a previously unreleased track from the GT Ultra era. Only cut from last year’s acclaimed record so that all the audio could fit on a single LP (we know), “Spider Heard” revels in the same bright, propulsive energy of those album sessions. At once playfully singsong and seriously frenetic, Guerilla Toss throw us back into their vortex ahead of a new, different full-length coming later this year.

The title of 2017’s GT Ultra is a clever nod to ‘Project MK Ultra’, the government sponsored experiments using new experimental drugs to explore mind control, torture and forced confessions, often with LSD as their drug of choice.

The songs on the album ricochet back and forth between hyper bouncy pop and deeper darker longer, more nuanced tracks. Peter Negroponte’s drumming, always a major highlight for the band, are in full force once again, this time bringing a Nassau/Compass Point feel to many tracks, like the classic recordings of Grace Jones and Talking Heads.

Kassie’s vocals and lyrics are both more personal and more cryptic than ever. But you can hear every word this time, and there is a lyric sheet. As preferred, the meaning is within the listener. It is a dream state record for sure, meant to take you along on a similar vibe that the band has been tripping on these past few years, filled with an insistence to “hydrate, gyrate, think straight, no weight”, all the while under the influence of golden beams of orange sunshine, glimmering glitter and kaleidoscopic bursts.
