A kind of nothingy album from someone who we know can do much better, hard to love or hate taken on its own merits, but difficult to separate from the hugely problematic nature of the project it was created for.
Entirely inoffensive jangle-pop, like Teenage Fanclub inching towards something more commercial, in a 90s kind of way. Not badly-crafted, but ultimately there are many better bands to scratch this particular itch.
I nearly passed on this album, as the terrible band name suggested a tiresomely wacky joke band. Glad I didn't as this is actually a pretty great psychedelic garage rock album. As derivative as you'd expect from those genres, but a good slab of 60s and 70s infused rock.
A covers version of Samia's rather good 'The Baby' from 2020. It's still a highly enjoyable listen, and there are some good tracks here - Anjimile's Waverly and Remo Drive's Fit N Full stand out - but the album never quite justifies its own existence, and the logic of stripping Samia herself from her songs.
