Fast & dancey 8-bit blast of sheer fucking awesome. Boyfriend and girlfriend outfit out of New Bedford, Mass. Their second record. Short (2-3min), superfast energy sonics. Crazed, yelled vocals. Lyrics that reference the lyrics on other tracks. Tinny, high-pitched, metallic Game Boy goodness. All the songs end with a gong noise (?!). Holy shit, dudes. Please skank to this in the dj booth. Play play play play play.|
try: 4, 5, 2, 1, 9
*1. fast. happy, exuberant. but: soft start. full volume at :12. vamps “everybody have fun tonight!” ends with a spoken sample (after the gong).
*2. mid-fast, bouncy. awesome synth melody. “good enough isn’t good enough!”
3. doubled upfront vocals. hard-hitting call-backs. somewhat discordant chorus. random grandiose bridge. calms down a little for the last few seconds.
*4. fast. line dance instructions over crazed honky keys. “everybody throw your hands in the air!”
*5. mid-fast. great overarching synth line w/doubled vocal melody. “what’s the deal with the horses?” a bit of a bridge in minute 2. the longest track on the record at 3:37.
6. mid-fast. pan pipes synth. very video gamey. comparably tame and almost classically melodic. “whatever happened to big foot?”
7. mid-tempo, laid back, sing-songy -- could be an 8-bit cover of a pop punk / old school emo song. “this is how we put our clothes on.” nice keys breakdown at very end.
8. mid-fast. somewhat fuzzy bass synth. sparkling, scattershot key runs.
*9. mid-fast. driving tinny drums. “it’s so awesome... yeah!” randomly vamps “it’s the end of the world as we know it”.
