Helvetia is Jason Albertini from Built to Spill, this is their 9th record. Honestly, I have been listening to it in my car for weeks and I love it so much, one of the best things I have heard in a while. RIYL: Built To Spill, Pinback, Sebadoh, Dungen…etc|
Favorites: 1, 3, 5, 6, 11 (and all of the others.)
FCCs: Track 7 and Track 8
1. (2:25) Bermuda - Lazy, easy, mid-tempo, great melody.
2. (2:59) The Rubber Maids - Fuzzy all the way through, super cool mix of rhythms and layers.
3. (3:18) A Dot Running For The Dust - One of the best. More fuzz, catchy mini-melody anchor, amazing lyrics.
4. (2:35) Rebel Beans - Meandering sounds, and eventual grumblings of "rebel beans!!"
5. (2:13) Crumbs Like Saucers - Another of my favorites, this one almost reminds me of Pinback, overall great downtempo and a little eery track.
6. Shower Radio - This song is amazing, that guitar riff is stupid good, and another overall very interesting combo of instruments and killer lyrics.
7. FCC SHIT Psychomagic - LOVE this song, so bummed it has an FCC. Listen to it on your own time, it is one of the best.
8. FCC SHIT See Saw Sow - This is another Pinback sounding track, love. also can't be played though :(
9. Olaf - This is not my favorite, a little to dark and stormy for me.
10. Pink Finish - Super cool sound, very echoey, all of the fuzz.
11. Dromomania - This one is great, almost has a bit of Dungen sound to it, beautiful instrumentation, more clever lyrics, really great track.
12. Feeling The Warm Hair - More of a straight forward indie rock track, guitar, drums, not much distortion, great end to the record.
