Very noisy, lo-fi, often drone-based country/blues-tinged pop songs. Tons of reverb, delay, feedback and tape hiss over chugging blues riffs or folk fingerpicking. KV's Matador debut is the most accessible of his many recordings to date, and for my money the best. Different songs have very different vibes, so check out a few. RIYD: Girls, Wavves, Ariel Pink, Times New Viking.|
01.** Pounding noisy blues
02. Noisy dreamscape w/ reverb fingerpicking over the top. Similar vibe to 5 and 7 but not as catchy.
03. Seems like every KV album has a track with this head-bob rhythm guitar (see: "Deep Sea," "My Best Friends"). It works
04.*** 7 mins long. Steam train drumbeat behind gobs of noise, Springsteen yelps and whistles. FCC: "shit" but you can barely make it out.
05.*** Mellower, hypnotic fingerpicking lick w/ decent amount of noise/hiss and muddy vocals.
06. Keyboards, more standard pop structure/chord changes than the rest.
07. ** Similar vibe to 5: slow steady fingerpicking. Less noise/hiss, more delay and reverb, clearer vocals.
08. Quieter tone w/ a shuffle beat.
09. Slow, pounding beat with reverb harmonica. Heavy, distorted Julian Casablancas-style vocals in the back of the mix.
10. Mid-tempo, cleaner ballad. Clear vocals.
11.** 3-min instrumental of the beat from track 4.
