Solo album from Jared Blüm. Relies heavily on vinyl samples, giving it the self described "Thrift Store Rock" sound. Rough around the edges, but there are a few interesting tracks in here if you're feeling funky. All instrumental - no vocals apart from the occasional sample. Short bursts of sound with limited continuity from track to track.
1. :58 - Short burst of sound - serves as an album introduction
* 2. 1:28 - Tropical samples with a steady beat - lovely track
* 3. 2:22 - Repetitive loop with violin sounding sample.
4. 1:47- Plodding factory beat with quick synthy instrumental. I feel like I'm on a production line. Harsh ending.
5. 1:39 - Fuzzed out plunky sample with some beautiful choral vocals overlaid. Strange chanting at the end.
6. 1:39 - This song reminded me a bit of Star Slinger - faster beat with a high pitched orchestral sample. Gets strange at the end.
* 7. 1:40 - I feel like Bambi in the forest - danger is coming. Awesome orchestral sample comes in about :35.
8. 1:47 - Plodding beat with some pretty wacky synths. Vocal sample repeats "Bacon."
9. :29 - I can't really call this a song.
10. 3:05 - I feel like I'm on a 60s television show. Fades out after a minute and now I'm being abducted, but it feels good.
* 11. 2:16 - Starts with heart beat with french vocal samples. Transitions to jazzy bass and steady drum beat. Cool track.
12. :32 - Transition.
13. :46 - Record player slowing down. Transitions into a nice beat with some chipmunk-y vocals.
14. 1:14 - Vocal sample of an older woman recounting playing with dolls.
15. 1:35 - Reminiscent of Star Slinger - chipmunk-ed vocals over a decent beat. Gets down halfway through.
16. :59 - Sounds like I'm in a sewer. In space.
17. 1:26 - Harpsichord overlays a nice string sample.
18. 1:07 - Sounds like a warlock casting a spell. Might give you nightmares.
19. 1:38 - Live track starts with applause. Reminds me of The Books. Laughing from crowd in response to some of the samples.
20. 1:12 - Finale track - rapid harpsichord with fuzzed out vocals repeating. "Win or Lose It." Future/Past phone ring sample.
