Album Review
Reviewed 2009-04-03
Elephant Six pop sensibilities mixed with accordion-like sounds, superfuzz, and noise freakouts. Super lo-fi sounding. Imagine if Casiotone from the Painfully alone finally did himself the favor of choking on a microphone. Or maybe Nessie & Her Beard on Valentines day. Short tracks. Good mix of psych, lo-fi, noise, & folk.
No Discernible FCCs. -BRICK

1***- Super fuzzed out casio sounds, goes to twisting highfrequency noises with train whistle sound. Fuck yeah
2***-Happy elephant-6 jangly casio ditty with shuffly tom tom percussion, and accordion.
3-Darker guitar catchy vocals, hand clap and tambourine percussion.
4- Lo fi slog, pop structure
5**- Lo whiney voices, occasional guitar strum, crashing sounds, and beepy nonsense.
6***- very short playful instrumental interlude of jangled piano sounds
7***- loud exploding sound and bright evil toy piano, groany but happy vocals, and the fuzz turned on, with big pulsating washes
8- strummy simple guitar, water sounds, folky vocals ‘there is a river,’ mellow, pretty.
9- simple guitar and vocals song
10- Like being trapped in a fish tank beneath a folk-concert, under a floor that is being nailed in while you have tinitis.
