Presenting fuck’s first new record in over ten years, the band, on Vampire Blues! In the mid-’90s to the early aughts, fuck was releasing a new record every other year and touring constantly while jumping from label to label. Then, with nary a warning, they up and disappeared. No note, no nothing.
Like: Butterglory, Dump, Tobin Sprout.
FCC 4, (And the name of the band)
1.To Whom (1:37) Warmer sounding, rawer, strong, anthemic statement.
2.Facehole (1:50) Slow beautiful, lo fi form of post-punk distorted ballad.
3.Bossy Nova (3:51) Monotone vocals, stress less guitar licks, dissonance bossanova.
4.It Girl (2:30) Catchy vocals and guitars ...a raw lovesong with singalong.
5.Cream Pie Patch (2:47) Rock ballad that would be certainties for primetime 90's radio airplay.
6.Devil eyes (1:53) Lo fi indie country-ish with jittery tempo that never truly explode.
7.Leave My Body (4:16) Nice track, slower strumming guitars, mellow keys 90's style.
8.Thirsty Gnome (1:46) Folky track with a stoic driving groove.
9.Meet the Gibbons (3:13) Reverb-y guitars conventions with equal doses of stark minimalism keyboards.
10.Baby Gregor (3:00) Odd twangy guitars intro the higher octave of great brain synapse-snapping catchy music.
11.Stay (2:11) Slower tempo which draws attention to a haunting, repetitive melody.
12.Joker (3:04) Moves at a steady slow crawling to the high top of a very calm song.
13.Over Duressing (3:34) Calm and relax indie country ballad.
14.Unwound (2:26) Slow-tempo, built on subtle textures.
15.Tell me no (2:28) Slow guitar-centric indie folk that takes you nowhere.
