Album Reviews

Reviewed 2009-11-19 
Woozy lo-fi pop psychedelia with a hint of funk/west african influence. Production values not terrible, but clearly a K Recs sound. Repetitive vocal lines over dub drums, piano tinkering, heavy synths and more esoteric sounds. This might be your daydream soundtrack when you fall asleep in the sun. RIYL: Beck, Microphones, Jefferson Airplane

01. Loose and vaguely harmonious noises in a pop framework.
02.** Awesome thrumming synth intro into a less interesting verse.
03.*** Catchy guitar hook w/ dreamy beat and vox.
04.** Slow and mellow w/ harmonica and flute lines.
05. Haunting drum and guitar with a Bonnie Prince Billy feel.
06. Almost jazzy, modal experiment, heavy on keys and synth.
07.** Disco bass beat with a catchy (by K standards) hook & synth line.
08. Faintly blues number that starts mellow and builds in intensity/instrumentation.
09.*** Head-nod bass beat w/ catchy melody and synco keys.
10. Brief bass/key/synth experiment. Falls apart nicely near the end.
11. Echoey vox over repetitive bass line w/ synths and keys.
12. Backwards tape loop vox & synth over a barely-there beat.
