Are you ready for the earthquake? The earthquake of dreams?
Good stuff from Bango who has his talents on full display. It may take a couple listens to sink in, but he has a way with a melody that is unique and worth seeking out.
Intergalactic Messenger of Divine Light and Love
Jonny Polonsky is weird. Sometimes he can be very poppy and sometimes he’s a little more hard edged. This album adds a layer of incomprehensible lyrics that make little to no sense. A couple good songs, but not much to grab onto.
Listen, they might be just recycling and not really original, and kind of pandering to a certain audience, but I like some of it. They somehow make fun pop songs that are just fun and nothing to think too much about.
Their EP was a slice of Creedence Clearwater Revival revival rock, it was kind of interesting as a novelty, but I wondered if they could do more with it. So this album is not just CCR revisited, it pulls in a few other influences, none of which really help their cause. It is uneven, and doesn’t feel “real” whatever that means.
Daughter of Cloud
I don’t really “get” the whole Georgie thing, I think I’m tired of it though. I kind of want to feel like there is some sort of truth behind it. Even most of of Montreal’s catalog is utter nonsense, I need a little more to really plant itself in my mind. Let’s face it; I just want playground silliness again.
