Rapider Than Horsepower, a four–piece from Bloomington, combines the influences of Hazel–era Red Krayola, Captain Beefheart and Gastr Del Sol. Rapider players both overlap and stray apart, pushing and pulling each other around like kids horsing around at an all–night Contra and Cola party. Stage Fright, Stage Fright opens up with a Prince–esque chord; then galloping guitar acrobatics fly in from behind, pushing the song forward. These acrobats soar in and out, floating just on the top, with plenty of room left on the bottom for the drums to pound right through the center, taking up all the low end that your crappy Aiwa stereo can handle. The vocals laid over the whole thing encompass everything from stream–of–consciousness to notebook quotes and stories about dating caterpillars. The band does not display the typical rock setup: no distortion, no effects and no bass guitar – not at all. They mold short, unrelenting songs ala Pere Ubu with the intense syncopation and broken, intricate riffage of U.S. Maple. In fact, if you took members of U.S. Maple and Pavement, made them eight years old again and threw them into a backyard sandbox in the sweltering Indiana summer, the sounds you would hear those prepubescent indie–rockers make would be something like Rapider Than Horsepower.
