Album Review

Reviewed 2007-01-10
Strange pop, very DIY basement-recording feel. Warbly singing backed by a variety of Casio synths, electronica sequencing, or guitar. Lyrics often lean on the usual pop-song love themes. Surprisingly serious, although there's some humor (titles like "What's That Dripping on My Head"). FCC: 11

1- Acoustic guitar; incomplete-sounding
2- Bright catchy guitar with a bit of screamed vocals. Almost like Adrian Belew.
3- Peppy guitar rock. Tough digging vocals. Fast.
4- Pleasant Casio-synth melody
5- Big anthemic sound (long intro)
6- Chill sounds, with semi-serious pop/rock vocal. Harmonica.
7- The Experimental One. Simple greeting-card synth riffs with spacey sound effects. Then, gets serious with a futuristic murmur of sounds. Uncharacteristically long, at nearly 10 minutes.
8- Peaceful lyrics; peaceful guitar that eventually rocks out
9- Bouncing synth playfulness, midtempo
10- Just what the title says: Silence.
11- *FCC* "fuck" last 15 secs. Slow cartoony/circus synths.
