East West Blast Test are Mr. Witte (East Coast) on drums and Mr. Dodge (West Coast) on everything else. With the album assembled by mailed tapes, each coast also gets a handful of guests in its corner: Witte brings along Municipal Waste’s Tony Foresta, Dim Mak’s Brandon Thomas and Burnt by the Sun/Human Remains bassist Ted Patterson; Dodge enlists his wife Lydia and Faith No More guitarist-for-five-minutes Dean Menta. Mostly instrumental, Popular Music for Unpopular People rarely sounds much like either Witte’s or Dodge’s former jobs and lets them get as self-indulgent as they can in 32 minutes and 23 tracks. With the guest musicians and studio construction, East West Blast Test aren’t just another bass/drums duo. “Lithe” visits lounge-funk with Lydia Parewski’s vocal mewing, “Fabulous Slurry” melds fast-forward grind with backmasked vocals, and “Soft Robotics” hangs out with Kraftwerk and videogamecore.
