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
http://www.omergal.com/
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
