Though rising and thriving in the sun-soaked swamps of Central Florida and briefly huddling in the bed-bug infested tombs of Brooklyn, Alligator Indian weren’t truly forged until Spooky B. and Christian Church relocated to the subterranean crystal nexus that is Asheville, NC. There they spent two years honing their art and craft while unfurling a slew of EPs and singles, culminating in their debut LP, Spring I’m In, on San Diego’s Bleeding Gold Records.
Spring I’m In launches opportunely enough at the cusp of the season, but the recording process originally had Alligator Indian beginning work in their mountain retreat, the Rainbow Reservation, shortly after the summer release of their FOOTBALL EP with Bleeding Gold. The resultant sound files came across like a worn out copy of Simon Reynold’s post-punk opus Rip It Up and Start Again dropped in a vat of lysergic acid diethylamide, if they may be so bold. And if’n they mayn’t, let’s just say it’s pretty not so bad. The aural constructs begin with a blistering sci-fi tale of a world where tyrannical governments mandate who a citizen can become betrothed to. From there, themes and sounds shift between fuzzy post-pop, a cappella bursts of vocals, and industrial cries for contentment.
In a vanguard effort to introduce their debut LP, Alligator Indian chose the tune “Dark Fruit” to represent the album. Balancing lyrics that deal with hope, loss, death, Florida wildfires, and of course vampires, “Dark Fruit” twists through haunting ivory interplay between Mister Church’s and Miss Bea’s keys before erupting in tribal triumph and percussive payoff. To further articulate the audio, analogue auteur the Cyclist and pop patron Heart Island reimaginatively mixed, or “remixed,” the song. The sparse drone of the Cyclist’s version cuddles alongside Heart Island’s saccharine dance, creating a trio of immersive and entertaining tracks built around one unit of song.
