The very solid debut release from Dignan Porch, a lo-fi 4-piece outfit out of London. All songs were recorded for the cheap (literally out of their bedrooms), but are strung together in intricate and creative ways. All tunes are lo-fi and a spot hissy, but with chipper, clear instrumentation and a deliberate attention to melody and balance. (All songs are short, so keep an eye out on the time). |
NO FCC VIOLATIONS
1. Strummy acoustic guitar with eerie electronic warbling. Heavily distorted male vocals.
2. Hissy lo-fi with echoed vocals and high-pitched guitar strumming.
*3. Slow-tempo rocker with a simple, straight-forward structure of layered electric guitar, thudding percussion and forced, distorted vocals.
*4. A slow, epic buildup transitions into a downtempo ballad with distorted extra-terrestrial lyrics and reverberating guitarwork. U2 meets the Knife.
5. Mid-tempo rocker with loud percussion, lots of guitar pedals and repetitive lyrics.
*6. Washes of My Bloody Valentine guitar and sneering lyrics.
7. Slow, rambling acoustic with heavy-hitting drums.
8. 28 seconds of dreamy crooning with muted amplifier feedback.
*9. A high-energy guitar intro leads into a nasally-sung lo-fi rocker.
*10. Loud full, wall-of sound approach with tons of strummy guitars, echoing drums, and squealing waves of high-pitched guitar in the background.
*11. Sad, but in a very sweet, melodic way. Open and vulnerable with sweet acoustic plucking. The last minute or so is instrumental: intertwined strumming guitars of differing textures—one very blunt and straightforward and the other rather submissive and shy.
12. A lo-fi take on the classic romance impulse “let’s run away together and forget the world.”
*13. Lots of ethereal effects and weird jangling sounds. Smooth bedtimestory vocals.
