Baby Daddy – Hungry Hungry Nipple CDr

Slut Factory Records

Baby Daddy is a harsh noise duo out of North Carolina, and their sound is a pretty typical one. With metallic, spacy tones, robotic, warbling effects and Masonna-esque intensity, Hungry Hungry Nipple does very little to deviate from the harsh noise sound. What this album does best is create a tense atmosphere without scathing the listener’s ears. The sound is much more cosmic than harsh and the progressions have just enough psychedelic undertones involved to keep the sound interesting.

The major transitions here are few but there is a definite difference between the first and last half of Hungry Hungry Nipple: the last 15 minutes or so take on a much more low-key, ambient feel, helping this album to stand out in an otherwise overdone genre. While engrossing and very dense in sound, Hungry Hungry Nipple doesn’t have a whole lot going on for it that hasn’t been done before. There really isn’t enough variation present to call this original. The packaging on this album is very minimal but I appreciate the DIY art direction Baby Daddy takes. Overall, newcomers to harsh noise might find something interesting here but long time fans could probably pass this one over.
