BOY(MOUTH): R.P. #72: Thrift Shop Undies (The Stainiest Are the Zanyest): CD-R

May 25, 2021

I understand the art rock and/or performance art sensibilities behind this act, but even Jackson Pollock didn’t throw whatever out there. So, if you’ve been following the thrilling adventures of the Razorcake review staff, you’ve maybe read a few reviews of the bajillion releases by Boy(Mouth). I myself described them a bit over a year ago as a “jangly, grating mess,” but this latest effort represents improvement, as there are marginally identifiable melodies! This release actually isn’t too bad, but I’m not yet ready to call it “good.” And I am open to the possibility that any faults I find on this stem from my curmudgeonly sensibilities wherein I just don’t get it. I know that Boy(Mouth) are one of those bands that if I knew them personally I would think they were frickin’ GEEN-YUS, but I don’t, so they’re not. –The Lord Kveldulfr (Rotten Princess)
