Weird, sily pop with gleefully howled vocals and jokey lyrics. Alternates authentic '60s bubblegum (9,12), punk touches (6,10), and just plain weirdness (1,8,15). Probably has some serious undertones if I'd just listen more carefully; tracks like 5 and 9 kind of have a "message." It's all played very loosely, but I do get the sense they know what they're doing. FCCs are edited out, but watch out for #14. |
1- Stiff robotic verses answered by looser, squeaky vocal
2- Cool sparse sound and tapping rhythm
3- Super pop
4- Yoko Ono cover. Theatrical.
5- Almost a kiddie-song melody; quasi-political. Spacey end.
6- Touches of punk/CBGBs.
7- Silly: "I am so-oo rock 'n' roll! (squeal!)"
8- Weird-ass instrumental. Slowish sloppy overlapping chaos.
9- Bouncy jangle-pop, an anti-protest protest
10- Chunky pop/punk
11- Easygoing jangle pop
12- '60s dance party
13- Goofy driving pulse
14- *FCC* ("fuck" not edited out properly).
15- Church organ & silly chant. Snaps into catchy pop/rock
