RIYL... Japanther? The Television Personalities? Guided By Voices? Listening to live music through a rotary phone?
try: 8, 7, 1
FCC: 11? (I can make out a grand total of twelve words on this entire record.)
*1. super-simple draggy chords and a surprisingly effective vocal vamp. kicks off almost exactly like an elliott smith demo i can’t place.
2. heavy slow tambourine and sidewinder hi-pitched bass. western drawl.
3. upbeat, strummy, happy. handclaps. rocking chair rock. ends with some ‘ooh’s.
4. chill island slow dance. sorta romantic, but also wumbly. the longest track on the record.
5. warble gear-up. lots of space/separation. banjo & bass drum. gets a little rockabilly, then backs off. could be a white stripes demo.
6. warbling, wailing, tuneless strumming, piano clodding. 56 seconds’ worth.
*7. slowed-down surf jam. on the sweet side. nice smooth-moves bass line. sounds a wee bit like the zombies.
*8. uptempo singalong. jaunty drums & campfire melody. bright and fun.
9. heavy drums, fast strumming, half-melodic, half-off-key vox. ‘gonna have to go-ooh-whoa whoa-ooh-whoa-ooh-whoa a-waaayyy.’
10. shakers & bom-bom bass. lilty melody. square dance on slow mo. alternately: lost track from tom sawyer’s high school battle of the bands.
11. FCC? (‘fuckers’?) fast & strummy. rudder bass & thwomping bass drum. yelled, punky vox.
12. driving hi-pitched bass and bass drum that always seem to be speeding up. repetitive yet relentless. spanish lyrics.
