Cookie Tongue – “Biotic Rituals” – [Self-release]

Cutesy pop pie baked fresh locally in San Francisco, no
sourdough or sourface seeding…but some sweet sort of
Tiny Tim/Sufjan Stevens yeast. Sometimes the best
woman for this type of precious music is a man, or
a Gal, as in Omer Gal. Omer’s got plenty of Keebler
elves as friends in his playhouse, and his finger
is in other artistic puddings as seen at


Mostly acoustic accompaniment, guitars, banjo,
singing saw (on “Grin”), violin, accordian and
some plinky-plonky toys at times. Lyrics are laced
with something, maybe nonsense? Yiddish and German
collide, at times I thought of Nick Drake if he
never had a single suicidal thought, or Jay Munly
with a water pistol? I kinda connected with the
first side a bit more, but then again maybe that’s
cause cookies are better as snacks and not for
full meals. Mix this in as a goofy gumball treat,
for your listeners.

    Hi Thurston thanks for the thoughtful review ;) (I’m just seeing this now 2 years later lol.. )
    We are soon to release a new album this summer, “Orphan Arms” which is currently in mixing stages.
    We made a successful fully funded Kickstarter for it, if you want to get a preview of the vibe for the new album check out the crazy video at this link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/783728252/cookie-tongue-new-album-orphan-arms
