Out of Adam Widener’s laboratory comes the mad scientist’s new EP Gimmee Gimmee Scientific Stuff, bubbling over with anxious, urgent pop songs straight from the mind of a man on the verge of going all Mr. Hyde on our ass.
The title track is an anthem for punk scientists everywhere. It’s a shot of energy potion that praises test tubes and the elements with a simple catchy beat. Gimmeealso features a perfectly appropriate cover of the Godfathers of nerd rock, Devo. It is a straightforward, but great rendition of “Don’t Know What to Do Do,” that adds to the whole Watch-out!-I’m-about-to-transform-into-a-monster vibe the EP has.
Not only did Adam Widener create the seven little pieces of pop candy on Gimmee, he also created the totally awesome 3-D packaging. And get this: there are no pesky paper glasses, the vinyl itself acts as the glasses. Just place the translucent half red half blue record a few inches from your eyes and the cover art comes to life.
