Album Review
Reviewed 2009-01-06
Recorded live, with raindrops on the tin roof (which you can hear). A kitschy artistic blend of thrift-store synth, Casiotone, elec. Drums, guitar, cuatro, and various small percussion gadgets. Plus vocals. Ranging from acoustic to electronic (usually mixed) and full of spontaneous energy. Lots of short songs, and everything is pretty cool and/or weird. Should appeal to many KZSU individualists. Check out the following especially:

1. Lazy-slow, maracas, guitar, vox, synth. Kinda cool.
2. Mid/uptempo quirky w/a playful kind of energy.
3. Tripping fast vocals, a triangle? Percussion, strings. Weird.
7. Movie soundtrack-feel to this quirky, jazzy downtempo dance.
9. Upbeat electronica, breathy male vox. Odd, but likeable.
11. Guitar, mouth harp, female vocalist ooh-oohing. Bouncy.
14. Scraping percussion sounds like a frog, guitar. Slow.
15. Suddenly we’re in a disco w/freaky vocals….like bad Bollywood.
17. Squeaky hip midtempo jazz w/what sounds like a toy sax.
