try to convince me this isn't insanely good, because you can't


very nice chill indie record but not alot of memorable tracks sadly, the cover is very cute and fits the vibe of the record pretty good, i will be listening to some more beat happening for sure i've been wanting to listen to their self titled debut for a while because of the cat, overall just very nice and chill give it a listen :D


Music to put your sunglasses on and swing your hips side to side to. Music to put in the cassette player and drive to the mall with your friends, stoned and craving dip and dots. Music to play while you smoke a cigarette outside as you stand by the wall, staring off into space thinking about the crushing nature of life, or what to say to your crush. Also, great god The This Many Boyfriends Club is so out of left field that I can’t help but love it and its Sonic Youth-y nature.
