It's been said many times that bands these days don't take risk. Everyone wants to be successful and quit their day job so they can live off their music. And I guess in order to do that, you have to play it safe. It also seems that most bands think that being "experimental" is crossing two well know sub-genres that people are very familiar with. When listening to Brain Fragment, you know they're really pushing things to a new level. And they know the risk, which makes their sound adventurous.
On LSD Is Good For You, what we get is "fun chaos". There's definitely songs on here to get wild and have a good time. Like when you hit the play button, and "Jammin'" comes blaring out of the speakers; you know that "outer-space/alien" sound means "this is gonna rip". Then "Kill Yourself" follows next. And you just can't help yourself say "holy shit" when you hear Dave's killer bass tone, and Luis jazz influence drum beats. "I Become A Monster" is the punk rock song that this generation needs. And as loud and vicious Brain Fragment can get, I really dig "Dandelion Kisses". It reminds me of the late-80's post-hardcore bands like Rites Of Spring.
I like to thing that if Frank Zappa was still alive, he would had put out LSD Is Good For You on Bizarre Records. To me, this album defines what free-form music and artistic freedom represents. When you have no one to answer, and just create what you love; it brings out something organic and very real. And it's those exact things that Brain Fragment brings to the table. The musicianship between Dave and Luis is really tight and compliment each other very well. Especially when it comes to vocal duty. There are really great dynamics between Dave and Luis. If you love your hardcore punk with a taste of jazz and avant-garde/psych, then LSD Is Good For You will be up your alley. So follow the snail trail for one hell of a mind-trip
LSD Is Good For You gets "5 Hitlers Punched In The Face".
