Album Review
Reviewed 2022-06-01 
Electronic indie rock/pop. The solo project of Johnny Lynch, a bearded lad, who lives on a tiny island off the coast of Scotland with a population of 105. Zany percussion, shimmery vocal effects, and freak folk elements abound. Recommended for fans of Animal Collective, Dan Deacon, Panda Bear, and the Pinker Tones.

FCC: 8
Try: 2, 4, 6, 7

(1.) (4:27) Drilling drum beat with passionate vocals and spacey effects
(2.) (5:25) Upbeat and catchy with an echoey chorus and crunchy blown-out guitars
(3.) (3:16) Crooned lyrics and gentle happy-go-lucky electronic plodding
(4.) (3:21) Spazzy beat with snazzy electro elements
(5.) (4:05) Midtempo with a gothic, industrial vibe
(6.) (2:57) Shimmery and lush. Gentle vocals and resonating chimes. Walden Pond-core
(7.) (3:45) Melodic and folky with bright keyboard riffs, bird samples, and loose percussion. Reminds me a lot of Animal Collective
(8.) (3:54) FCC. Frenzied with fuzzy guitar
(9.) (3:51) Stompy with squealing guitar and washed-out vocals
(10.) (4:01) Bouncy weirdo rock with chipmunk vocal effects
