Neues Album! Kevin Barnes contemplated how time functions in music and experimented accordingly. These new songs, dense with ideas but short on repetition, feel epic in scope despite reasonable running times. Like the staircases of M.C. Eschers Relativity, the discrete sections of "Marijuanas A Working Woman" and "Blab Sabbath Lathe of Maiden" crisscross and pivot, confounding the senses yet commanding attention. The imagery and sentiments that bubble forth from Barnes lyrical wordplay prove equally disorienting. "Is it important to say black chrome rodents?," asks Barnes on Après The Déclassé." Phrases borne of free association took on new meaning when introduced into a song. "Its like collaborating with my subconscious in a way. It feels deeply personal, even though I dont necessarily understand it at that moment." "Marijuanas A Working Woman'' juxtaposes oddball funk a la Zapp or Rick James with nods to Alice Anne Bailys 19th century spiritualism. "Modern Art Bewilders" zigzags between baroque psychedelic idyll and synthpop tantrum, equal parts Sgt. Peppers and Gary Numan. Other influences woven throughout include realist painter Edward Hopper, fantasy author Ursula K. Le Guin, cinéaste Pedro Almodovar, and erotic illustrator Toshio Saeki. Barnes likens their compositional process to making collages from seemingly unrelated source materials, combining them in provocative ways to reveal new meanings. "I wasnt working with specific themes that I wanted to try and stretch over a three-minute pop song. It was sewing together a lot of fragmented thoughts, which ties in nicely to the freewave aspect of the album titles meaning. As Barnes explains, "Freewave is my term for wild and intractable artistic expression. Lucifer is the angel of enlightenment and elucidation. Fuck is something we say when things are going really well, or really badly." As for anything else going on behind the scenes during the genesis of Freewave Lucifer f<ck f^ck f>ck, Barnes opts to preserve the mystery. "Sometimes in the past, I felt it was important for people to know certain things, so they could get into a specific headspace. Not this time. "The last couple of years laid a heavy trip on everybodys psyche. There are plenty of universal things here to identify with."*Polyvinyl
