CAT JELLY: Self-titled: CD

This six-song EP could use some work. The songwriting is basic and the music is painfully simple. It’s hard to tell if the band is trying to be experimental or if they’re just beginners. The liner notes inside the CD read like a high school year book signing, but it’s hard for me to tell what’s ironic or sincere these days. More than likely, Cat Jelly is giving their best go at Romeo Void-esque trash punk. Honestly, it’s not worth a listen, but they have potential. However, if their album cover featuring cartoon cats pulling out their own guts juxtaposed on top of photographs of pizza is any indication of talent, they at least have promising futures in a marketing department.
