This is a brief introduction to the XoloStar Warrior, whose songs are in the Indietronic category on Soundclick. “Humantron” sounds like one a Buckethead instrumental. Which means it’s funky, heavy and groovy and there’s cool sound effects. And fun. “Zenorama” breaks out the vocal harmonizer and effects, along with the finger-jab drum machine sounds. Nice. Absurd, really. But great! “Para Talk” jumps in with a funky beat and more spaced-out spoken bits which go through every effect known to man. It’s kind of hilarious and great at the same time. Finally, “Go Luup” continues with fragmented beats and rather deranged synth-stabs. Did he just say “shadow of the octopus”? Fun and awesome.
