Album Review
Reviewed 2009-08-14 
A dense, noisy, lo-fi indie album. Some definite punk influence, along with some electronics. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend this, but if you’re into the punk/noise side of modern indie, give tracks 7, 10, 4, and 1 a spin.

1. *Dark, drony, dense, noisy, reverb (2:50)

2. !!FCC!! Synthy, electronic, crispy, eerie (3:53)

3. Sparse, discordant, bass-focused. Guitar effects. Really weird, but still kinda cool (2:25)

4. **A much more straight-ahead rock tune, but maintains grit and discord (2:35)

5. Angels, pads, choir vocals, bleeps and bloops... filler. (1:15)

6. Noisy, punk, driving (2:06)

7. ***Soft, acoustic, fuzzy breakout about half-way through (3:14)

8. * Improvised (poorly) synth bloops lead into very electronic and random track. (2:26)

9. Weird ass children samples, meandering guitar... what? (2:30)

10. ***A hip-hop tune? Cool samples, bass line, etc. real chill. (3:29)

11. Spoken vocals again, but nowhere near as good as the previous cut. (3:30)
