FCC warnings: track 1 for “asshole,” track 5 for “shit.” Otherwise, clean.
Favorites: 3, 4, 11, 12, 13.
RIYL: Talking Heads, Joy Division, Siouxsie & The Banshees, The Smiths, Pixies
1. (3:37) FCC warning. Mid-tempo. Low, gritty guitar and detached vocals enter, build up to a catchy chorus with full band and female backing singer. Laid-back vibe throughout.
2. (2:20) Fast. Cheerful, straightforward drum beat, great bass, allover beachy tune titled “California Calls.” Short and sweet.
3. *(2:15) Mid. Low notes and drums create a lazy/drawling mood at the beginning, bit of a Pixies sound. Paced really well despite lack of a chorus.
4. *(2:09) Mid to fast. Bright, sunny-day strumming, think The Smiths’ “This Charming Man.” Sarcastic Morrissey-like vocals ordering you to “love your city, now.” No word from Sleater-Kinney on this endeavor.
5. (1:31) FCC warning. Fast. Distorted riffs with some electronic noise, cheerful and upbeat to mask biting lyrics once again.
6. (3:37) Slow. Acoustic, then psychedelic sounds chug along vacantly. “The life I’ve lived has killed me/and if I die it’s okay.” So much Morrissey in the vocals here. Melodic, melancholy chorus. Female vocals and soft drums join in before the close.
7. (2:23) Mid. Higher riff, jumps right in. Quick, catchy, the vocals about a subpar barmate are much more David Byrne this time. Nice little solo in the bridge.
8. (2:26) Fast, energetic, one to nod your head to. More high notes. Abstract lyrics with gems like, “Love is not an accident, but who can really tell?”
9. (1:41) Mid to fast. Tambourines and a groovy, school-just-got-out-we’re-heading-to-the-beach-in-1987 pop sound.
10. (1:48) Mid. Interesting song structure. Noisy, distorted high guitar layered over a lower, persistent one. David Byrne voice that’s reaching for notes too high and doesn’t care. Just a fun track.
11. (3:15) Mid. A consistent, driving, low rhythm guitar, floor toms. Great section when the bass comes in around 1:33. Then some clapping, coed vocals, back to full band.
12. *(3:31) Slow- to mid. Mellow, lighthearted picking. Pleasant “ahh”s from the female backer to add to the dreaminess. Very Belle and Sebastian.
13. *(3:11) Love this one. Mid-tempo, featuring a hazy and slightly ominous riff that runs through the song. The coed singing here creates a nicely eerie vibe, like children chanting their learned verses, to accompany the lyrics about a cultlike ritual.
