Lusk_Free Mars_kisses and noiseLusk’s one and only album, Free Mars, was released in 1997. They are described as a “highly experimental psychedelic pop band.” Tool’s original bass player, Paul D’Amour left the band after Undertow to pursue something “more experimental” and Lusk is just that. “Backworlds” is the first song on the album and maybe the most listenable. It is actually reminiscent of current, progressive indie rock – along the lines of MEW. The song creates the clever parallel of sounding light and poppy while the lyrics and feel lend themselves to something darker. The video for “Backworlds” is similar; innocuous yet disconcerting.
