Buffalo’s Scary Planetary released their self-titled LP this spring. The duo, Brandon Schlia and Bradley Kujawski, spent six months recording, and the resulting album is an electronic venture into spacey indie rock.
The guitars, keyboards and drum machines jump between genres. “Science Friction” takes on Gayngs-like R&B, and “Existing in the Inhospitable” is built around frantically ringing samples. “Quantum Singularity” starts with a keyboard circus riff and erupts with a wailing guitar solo and breakneck Aphex Twin-style drum machine, before breaking down again.
Schlia also runs the Buffalo independent label Steak & Cake Records, with a catalog that’s definitely worth exploring. Scary Planetary is available for a name-your-own-price download on the label’s Bandcamp.
