Alien Baby, the second full-length offering from Richmond VA's Ultra Dolphins, is a living, breathing, space creature -- a sci-fi monster with a hardened exo-skeleton, scorching toxic blood and telepathic connectivity. Recorded by Steve Roche at Permanent Hearing Damage in Philadelphia (The Catalyst, Brainworms, Off Minor, Saetia), the band tracked most of the record live to two inch tape. Despite the limitations of the recording process, Alien Baby is a rich sonic landscape: double drum sets, two-hand tapping, three-part harmonies, tremolo guitars, and of course walls and layers of visceral and incendiary noise. The nine songs on the album, clocking in just under forty minutes, reveal a group tampering with longer song formats and committing themselves to melody/lyricism while not abandoning their hard ripping rock and roll roots.
