Last Lizard – This Is Not My Country

Cacophony in a messy world are often the best audio illustrations to convey the confusion and bewilderment experienced by artists in their time. “This Is Not My Country” by Last Lizard, aka Alex Zhang Hungtai, who states on his profile that he is “Stateless” and whether that is a political statement or otherwise, this song exemplifies the tension felt inside of people experiencing a sense of helplessness. An echoey Baroque chamber feels like the home of these synth-felt listless soundwaves presented here and not until about 4.5 minutes in does the muted tonality rise beyond a rumble for a screaming last few moments.
