Today Is Sunday
Some kids from Ontario discover Casio keyboards and preprogrammed beats. I suppose this falls under ‘outsider indie-pop’. The vocals are all rather irritating. The melody’s are unerringly poppy. This sort of stuff can really get on your nerves, but in small doses it might be alright, and most of the tracks are mercifully short. Some of the percussion used is a bit interesting, sounding like various household objects being hit with things. If you like things that other people find incredibly irritating (and I know you’re out there!), then this album is all you.|
Recommended tracks: 10, 4, 2, 12.
1. Bouncy number. But aren’t they all?
2. Nice handclaps. Gets a bit trippy with some sort of distorted electronics at the end.
3. This one stuck in my head for days. Avoid it like the plague.
4. This one’s actually kind of pretty; slow with glockenspiel and organ and echoy vocals. I have no clue what language they’re singing in.
5. Does anyone know what language that is? Is it real? Upbeat.
6. It’s in waltz time. My oh my.
7. Has some funny lyrics, and a bit of a tempo change. Lordy.
8. It sounds like real drums on this one. Accordion, too.
9. Keyboard arpeggios and some sort of recorder.
10. Very quiet. I like these guys better when they keep quiet.
11. The distortion on the vocals makes them a bit less annoying.
12. Slow, mellow. Insipid, some might say.
13. Bonus track. Multi-part, with silence in between.
0:00-1:30 Muzak and spoken word.
3:20-4:50: Polka beat.
7:50-13:40: Wailed vocals, banged piano.
17:30-End: Organ-y pop song. More banged keys.
