This is a record that references Mark Twain, Bill Waterson, The Wiggles, and "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" illustrator Stephen Gammell. How is this not more well known?

As a sort of transition-piece in Neil's discography, there's a lot of songs that are pure flashes of genius, but other songs that use the same methods to poor results to the point that you wonder if he really has a handle on his own toolset yet. "Amnesia Was Her Name," one of my favorites on the album, ... read more

The best covers are ones where a group takes them and makes it into something unmistakable theirs. The Beatles had “Twist and Shout,” TMBG had “Istanbul,” The Clash had “Brand New Cadillac,” and now Tally Hall has “Just a Friend.” Bizarre, bloating, genre bending, pompous in the most self-deprecating way, this most unexpected fit turned out to be a match made in heaven.

Doom. The crash of a titanic wave capsizing a ship. Doom. The crackling dance of a flame as it spreads to burn everything you hold dear. Doom. The rumbles of a great mountain as smoke spews out from widening cracks. Doom. The sound of land razed and people crushed, formed into nearly two hours of dread. Surprisingly good study music, all things considered.

After two straightforward punk albums and a year of writers’ block, Joe Strummer and Mick Jones come roaring back with one of the greatest achievements in Rock history. Touring with new acts and keeping rehearsals private, they were ready to burst out with a plethora of genres to try out, each dripping with a caustic punk edge. Their cover of the English R&B classic “Brand New Cadillac” is turned into a screamer laced with venom, while the laid-back melodies of ... read more

Anyone who follows my reviews knows that I'm a fan of "shufflepunk" albums, records whose track lists are as varied in tone and genre as your phone on shuffle, and that albums whose songs are too related to each other can bore me. That's why I'm always surprised by my love for this album, which song-for-song is nearly identical in terms of instruments and production style. It's like a mountain town filled with wooden cabins; everything is similar in material and structure, but wander ... read more

Every great feeling you can have on a city street at the witching hour, when the town belongs to the nightbirds. Getting up to no good with your mates on "Five Spot After Dark," comfortable conversations with friends about nothing on "Undecided," walking in the park with a lovely person in "Blues-Ette." "Minor Vamp" conjures images of cozy dens of disrepute, "Love, Your Spell Is Everywhere" images of streetlights illuminating rainy urban ... read more

The second single for my Halloween project is out now! Would love to get your opinion on it! I'll also be reworking the first single to sound better and fit the project more!

About
Way too pretentious for someone unironically into vaporwave. Trying to make "shufflecore" a thing.

Reviews are mostly an excuse to indulge in my worst impulses regarding purple prose and verbiage. They tend to be longer and higher-rated because I mostly only review things I'm intimately familiar with, and I'm not a fan of subjecting myself to music I don't like.
