Album Review

From Burlington, VT, Salami Junior aka Joey Pizza Slice is a one-man, DIY, noise-pop band. Mr. Slice plays the keyboard, guitar, toy piano, some drum machine, vocals, and presumably more.

What is more interesting, is the way in which he records the songs. Joey manually removes the erasehead from the cassette recorder (the device which erases or scrambles the previous recording in order to record the new sound.) This allows him to layer the sounds onto the cassette much in same way a double exposure is made onto film.

The sounds a re muffled almost droney dreamy pop sounds with a gritty rusty feel. Pulls you in with its living-room-recording quality sound. All songs are short and sweet with great titles.

My favorites include: I Want To Drink Your Girlfriend’s Blood, I Never Want To Take Acid Again, The Day They Cut Me Out, and I Want World Peace. Limited to 400 copies!
