PINK NOISE, THE: Greedy Heart: LP

May 30, 2014

I see what these guys are going for, some kind of post-whatever new wave art rock, but it’s not happening for me. Wandering drums and atonal guitars drown in psychedelic effects while a vocalist with a grudge against the natural cadence of human speech sort of talks indifferently about arty things. Occasionally, there’s some mildly engaging synth weirdness. I get the feeling that this is supposed to offend my pop sensibilities, but I’m left feeling as bored as this guy sounds. There must be people who live and die by this kind of music, but I don’t see the point.
