Imagine if you could step outside your adolescent self and manually remove the layers upon layers of bullshit you had to consider fact until someone smacked your head upside itself and offered you an alternative, fresh and astronomically more productive reality.
Projects with Chimpanzebras
Dude, Relax picks up where Chimpanzebras’ debut Georgian House 1976 abruptly cuts off, subconsciously berating its listener with biting social satire underneath the jubilant guise of surfy, punky, jazzy pop. Front-man/guitarist/conceptualist David Charbula masterfully refrains from over-indulgence, opting thoughtful examination over the misanthropic tailspin that often plagues heavy introspection.
However, from all the wise and willful deductions drawn from Chimpanzebras’ quarter-life saga, it is the meditative poignancy suffered in the grand and aptly named “Coda” that particularly shines as the summation worth an adolescence waiting for.
