Album Review
Reviewed 2009-11-10
the best pop album of the decade. genius sense of vocal melody. a perfect circus of honky tonk struttin' guitars with dreamy lulls and a bed of instruments pulling in 4 directions at once but going to the same place. super inventive kaliedoscopic song structures , off kilter but inviting. this band has a melodic sense of genius, which is reflected in the vocal harmonies. weirdo pop album of the year for sure. everything is a surprise. pieces together the best moments of dream pop, honky tonk , western, freak folk, & hypnagogic pop. a brilliant work, and totally it's own thing. play each and every track at least thrice. wowowowowowowow. 11 stars out of 4. get this to number one for a year.

fcc clean-brick
1- buzzing kaliedoscopic pop masterpiece. swelling group vocal moans, funky pulse, fake i shot the sherrif guitars

2- jangling pumpy honky tonky wierdo strut w/ clip clop percussion & beautifully strange vocal harmonies

3-warbly western faux la tengo with half a brain missing and a twizzler up their nose jam

4-crunchier tambourine noisier off key wierdo jam, entitled scandinavia and a definite nod to fonal and finnish freak folk

5-swelling keyboard pop metallic, tinny clanks w/ a easy flute and delightful high scratches and high places style vox

6-narcotic dream trance twinkly cradle fantasy waltz pop w/ soaring brass. oh beautiful.

7-straightforward folky love song

8-swollen organ and clippity clop percussion

9-pulsing big bass swing your gal around poprock retro thriller

10-oomp-pa pa circus style with rising and falling vocals

11-60s summertime pop style vocals, xylophones, contrasted w/crunching guitars, beautiful.

12- wild dissonant organ intro gives way to beautiful chug ug a lug, with swirls, and a knee stompin rocker hidden somewhere

13-clunky 40 second intro unexplectedly turns into the most beautiful
