You Mean Nothing To Me
|Ragnar of Ravensfjord|
Big sounding punky power-pop from Mr. Reatard (Lost Sounds, The Reatards, Winter Coffin, et. al). The title’s self-explanatory – all singles he did in ’08. Dig this if you're into anything from Sparks to Cheap Trick to the Dickies. |
(((((1)))) Loud & infectious power pop with nice backing chorus.
(((((2))))) Fast strummy guitars, nerdy punky vocals with poppy choruses.
((((3))) Acoustic and electric guitars with call & response vocals some cool drum & chord breaks, too.
(((((4))))) 60’s psych intro with 70’s punk mixed with very addictive shouted out 80’s new wave-y/power pop choruses. Hellva chorus, too.
(((5))) Pixies-ish rocker by way of a few Dino Jr. & Cheap Trick moments (that is the chorus is a rip of “Surrender”).
((((6)))) Lo-fi strum with handclaps and neat little new wave keyboard with mandolin (!?). Rather good female & male choruses, too.
((7)) Annoying chorus, sounds like a Cheap Trick goes new wave” reject.
((((8))))) More Pixies-ish, minimal power-pop with a funny but unforgettablely weird chorus of “rel-ax, rel-lax…my little victim…my little Hitler.”
(((((9))))) Punky & loud, bombastic but still very catchy. Kinda Dickies-like but not as fast.
((((((10)))))) Fast “Bloodstains/Killed By Death” style punk with hints of keyboards & hard punctuated breaks. Short & to the point.
((11)) Mellow acoustic, slightly lo-fi with distorted vox. So-so at best.
(((12))) More acoustic mellow-ness but a bit more character. Sounds like one of his electric tunes set to “sleepy time” tempo.
(((13))) (FCC “Cunt” @ 1:07) 60’s-ish moog, acoustic/electric strummy pop with simple drumming. Dumb & creepy lyrics.
