Musical genre-bending rock songs
Fantastic! Well-structured songs feature sensationally dirty, haunting, and thrilling sounds, stealing (not borrowing) from indie, indie pop, funk, math rock, and prog-rock (jazz). Male and female vocalists make every song count with understated musicality. Each song has a consistent theme and genre, and even though the genre changes with the track number, the album plays like a symphony. This is highly highly recommended.
1. 3:16 * FCC at 0:28, RHCP-style funk groove with angular tenor vox, 8-bit noise effect interlude, changes to double-time groove near end with drum improving and guitar noise, exceptional in its soundscape, like a magic cavern
2. 3:52 * Bass and tambourine groove below captivating alto vox, guitar anthem and tension-building noise, Brian May-sound lead guitar fills, ritardando outro
3. 2:31 * Dark classic heavy metal intro groove, followed by an addictive 8-bit effect guitar riff and paranoid echo male vox / vox noise, skipping tape ghostly “nothing” to finish. Rock!
4. 2:36 “oh” vox riff over late 2000’s indie rhythm guitar and bass, frantic male falsetto hook “don’t want to lose ya” and female vox response, this track is a peak back at last decade’s disruptive rock bands
5. 2:11 * FCCs throughout silence after 2:03,math-rock rhythmic intro, polyrhythm rim click, thrashed bass guitar riff, so dirty and technical at the same time, angular riff and distorted vox, spare guitar outro
6. 2:57 Piano and synth bass below haunting alto, affected funk / rock tenor, boxy sounding kit beat, noise bass, haunting down temp track
7. 1:34 interesting chord changes on organ, 6/8 monstrous wall of rock repeats the changes, synth-effect guitar causes you to question your allegiances, cello finishes you off real good without ever hearing vox
8. 2:23 ** 7/8 intro, excellent cord changes on guitar over snare brushes, female vox haunts things up “are we a group of thieves now?” alternating major and minor, chorus takes us to a dramatic but short Mars Volta-style 4/4 anthem, then back to 7/8 tension with resonating guitar notes.
9. 1:03 * Distressed female robot-effect vox, assembly line beat, and it’s gone
10. 2:51 Cheery pop “ooh-ooh” intro, strong AC Newman-influenced sound, upbeat indie guitar rhythm, bass tom beat, happy chord changes, oblique lyrics, noise out
11. ** 3:45 Female vox over spare undistorted guitar evolves into torch song switching between 6/8 and 4/8, 1:57 brings a forte wall of lush sound, which proceeds to self-destruct, revealing alto vox, ready to reveal “I’ve got bodies in the back of my Cadillac” Wish it would go on for longer!
12. 4:49 6/8 synth string arpeggios to 4/4 down tempo lounge funk / jazz with female vox, “quiet down you capitalist”, piano, organ, vibra keys, fiddle-style violin, rhythm cello build on another haunting melodic hook, ride drums oblige, evoking “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)”
