Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
This record was in my rotation in August of last year (yes August!) and I had listened to them for a couple of months on rotation but no songs stuck out to me. So I put them in the “meh” pile.
Then as I was getting ready to purge that “pile” (folder on my computer) I gave everyone one more chance. I went to their website and read more about them. They seem really cute, quirky and fun. So I had to put them back in rotation and listen with a new set of ears.
Ironic, now that I look at the title of the album, and the band too, now that I look again.
So upon second review I’m seeing them slightly different. The songs still kind of sound alike. But it really is a fun quirky style. Jangly guitars, clever lyrics, catchy melodies…almost like a very lo-fi Barenaked Ladies but with less instrumentation, and more female voice.
This is the kind of band I would love to see live. They seem like they’re having a good time and that the music would translate well to small venue where they can interact with their listeners.
Fun song along-y type music.
