Following the group's triumphant set at PDX Pop Now!, the shit-spook punk of Blood Beach has been committed to wax. Return of the Curse of the Creature's Ghost—brownie points if you can correctly identify which late-'90s HBO sketch comedy show its title comes from—is a freaky, unsettling, eight-song voyage into nausea and fear. Does that make it sound unpleasant? It's one of the wonders of Blood Beach that their Monks-y, art-damaged squall is at all times exhilarating and engaging—in fact, it's damn good fun. Their songs are dressed in snarling guitars, disgruntled puffs of sax, and Camella Weedon's horror-movie theremin; their tumbling rhythms approach krautrock's fervor while cheerfully ignoring its lockstep precision. The 12-inch Creature's Ghost is the kind of record that'll make all your other records sound lame in comparison, and tonight's free show is your first chance to get your hands on a copy.
