Album Review
Reviewed 2013-10-31
Breathy deep dramatic vox, glitchy drum machine electro pop. Project of LA-based via KC Phil Diamond. "Punk crooning," ballads with pizazz and dance hits with vox in front. Personal, self-referential lyrics, "Phil" referred to in lots of tracks. Over the top, disco meets post-punk. His voice sounds kinda like Bowie meets Reznor; style of singing a little Byrnesque but songs much wordier, 80s echoey.

*1 (6:10) Ballad; heavy bassy beat, epic synths, pulsating drum machine
2 (3:38) High, dancy synths, glitchy. Loud, shouted, "indie" vox
3 (7:34) Waltzing piano synth, quiet drum machine, ballad for sure, super crooned. Anti-yuppie gluten-free vegan needing
4 (6:44) Layered organs, simple beat, occasional weird backing voc layer or sound effect (kiss, bacon cooking)
5 FCC FUCK (6:03) Orchestra and movie sample. Ominous. Particularly dramatic vox, real blatant sexual lyrics
*6 (4:53) Upbeat, glitchy, fun, poppy, pretty cool. Low, bassy final :45
*7 (4:05) Cool synth riffs, nice bass beat, 80s pop style
*8 (2:44) "Is it safe/sure do ya trust me" sample in one channel, fucked up distorted vocal samples in the other, kicks into a beat halfway through
