Searching for the Now 2 [coll] – [Slumberland Records]
Two pop tunes, not pop-ular so much as pop you in the head. I’d call these counter-twee, as the beats and melodies are all uptempo, but the lyrics are la la la Oh crap my life is so miserable la la la lock up the razorblades la la la, but much better written. “Oh no, Baby Don’t” is faster and sadder, while “Song for the Troubadour” is more of a melancholy reminiscence. Sweet sonorous self indulgences, musically rich, well recorded, on beautiully pressed vinyl, as we’ve come to expect from Slumberland.
