ATTIC TED: 3 New Songs: 7”

May 03, 2011

This record is entertaining, intriguing, and thoroughly bizarre. Circus music inspired lo-fi noise pop recorded with what sounds like drums, sparse guitar, and cheap synthesizers on four track, they definitely get a lot of bang for their musical buck, exploring the sonic limits of their instruments and recording equipment, stretching notes and keys in surprising ways. While these guys definitely fly the weird flag, there’s still enough pop smarts going on here for these tunes to be catchy and memorable. This is fun to listen to and worth a chance if you’re into outsider music of various stripes.
