4 stars TRIP LAVA's Oddball in the Corner Pocket is, so to speak, a glass of whisky with various aroma.

A few years before, I've tasted Kinclaith, one kind of Scotch Whisky. Then I could enjoy various aroma from top note to finish - iodic, estery, gingery, and fruity. Joel Lee's solo project TRIP LAVA can exactly bear an improvised, individualistic and experimental space rock world. Believe me but his musical identity could remind me the taste of Kinclaith. In so much spacey and persistently repeated sounds are comfortable alterations and attractive beats. Indeed the aroma of Kinclaith is not always well-balanced, but I suggest this distillery should always be experimental and motivated - I love exactly the point and colourful flavour. Oddball in the Corner Pocket can let me feel just like Kinclaith whisky. Whatever happens, it's a pleasure for me to make sure what sound Joel should shoot at another moment. Furthermore, each song title is enjoyable. I always wonder which Glass Disco is...the Disco on a glass floor, or a fragile disco sound like glass. Yeah, I feel both. In spite of the title Flying Tremolo, there are heavy and percussive sounds as an earthquake or ground rumblin'. Kung Fu? Industrial ACHOO!s (a shout of Kung Fu) pop and jump here and there...? Very interesting. Absolutely sounds of Squish are in the song and raindrops-like sounds too.

Joel would, I guess, show various feelings and impressions all over the world on the disc.
Is this correct, Joel an Oddball? :-)
