Album Review

Reviewed 2013-10-24 
Outsider new age avant-pop-rock. Jittery jarring electric guitar, female vocal stylings uncannily reminiscent of Gordon Gano. From the press sheet, you can expect sarcasm, verbal metaphors, and increased emphasis on the instrumental music, but with Kloba's trademark hopefulness shining through all of this. As a non-musician I'm not sure if the songs are remarkably simple or atheoretical; give it a play and decide for yourself.

1 (2:52) Buzzing guitar, strings, bitter ex-lover lyrics
*2 (3:25) Piano jaunt behind dark, moody song
*3 (3:10) Drawled-sung, even sneered early on, swirling synth backing
*4 (2:37) Thinkin bout the universe; happy bass sounds almost programming in its style, upbeat, choral backing vox
5 (3:15) Dark, brooding, pounding, deep backing M choral synths
6 (2:12) Moody, nature imagery. Lyric sheet says "I was raised by Bob CATS" but sadly I did not hear this lyric
7 (2:21) Plodding, rocky
8 (3:08) Psychy, chiming, love song "bare feet... painted toes... ankle bracelet... summer feet"
9 (3:29) Slower, foreboding bass and pounding drums
10 (2:49) Uplifting, staccato vox, congas, chiming guitar
