Superet - How To Work A Room
Aug 8, 2020
A really solid debut. I saw these guys live when they opened for IDKHOW in 2019, right before they released this album. Their live performance was energetic, engaging, and entertaining, and I find that that same energy is carried into their studio recordings very well.

I really like the spoken interludes and the robotic voice used suits the songs that follow, complementing the more electronic and synthesized elements in each song. The themes of the interludes don't really match the themes of the songs, but I appreciate them nonetheless.

Most of the songs on this album are quite interesting and are a lot of fun to listen to. 'Go to Sleep Kimberly' is so much fun, and it was one of my favourite songs of 2019. The vocal delivery is great, the lyrics, despite their simple subject matter, are very well written, and the distorted saxophone solo wraps the song up very well. 'A Gash on the Cheek' perfectly tells the story of betrayal and broken trust, while still managing to be a song I could easily dance to. 'YDS2M' shows variety in the songwriting, making effective use of the switches between 5/4 and 4/4 time signatures throughout the song. I listen to almost every track from this fairly regularly, and the quality of the album overall is great. I'm very much looking forward to seeing what Superet does next.

Favourites: Go to Sleep Kimberly, A Gash on the Cheek, Farrington Pond, YDS2M, Blue Age, Comes as Relief
