TERRIBLY EMPTY POCKETS: Get Wet: LP

I’m not going to lie, I’m confused. Really, really confused. After listening to this at 33 RPM, I read that it’s supposed to be played at 45, and honestly, I’m not positive which one is right. Musically, this started out like R.E.M. trying to play ska, so I think I’m allowed to say this whole record is really weird, total music nerd core stuff (and I have friends who argue over Coltraine records). The best thing I can think of to say about this is that I imagine a perfect show for this band would be outside at some street fair, in some arty beach town.
