amglogo.gif AMG REVIEW: Originally released as a CD-R, this acid-fried eight-track recording by this odd newcomer to Animal Collective's Paw Tracks label is one of the most wonderfully skewed takes on classic pop you're likely to hear. Tape warp and vintage hiss and hum are the outerwear, but some serious '70s radio songcraft dwells underneath. This is the stuff Bowie heard in his dreams when not being terrorized by Satan living in his swimming pool. So dang it if we don't have a lo-fi revival on our hands. But this new batch seems bound and determined to drag listeners back with writing so catchy and sounds so warm that it's impossible to resist. Just pretend you're Steve Buscemi's character in Ghost World, and Maxell cassettes are the new 78-rpm records.

customer review of Doldrums on

**** 4stars "Assfinger", November 30, 2004
Reviewer: Jared B. Morrison "Licky Oats" (NYC)
     A friend suggested that I pick up this CD, and after searching 5 record stores in NYC, I finally located the only copy at Virgin in X Square. So after a long day of work, I put this in and, on the first listen of the first track, I yelled "WTF WAS HE THINKING?!!?!".. but by the time I was finished with the second track, I think I 'got it'. I described it as the first time a girl ever sticks a finger up your arse when she is slopping away at a bj. You will be "WTF ARE YOU DOING?" but in just a few seconds you will be on a different plane of existance. And in a year, you will own an ASSortment of asstoys. This album is definitely an assfinger.
