MICHAEL MOUSE: Self-titled: CS

Jan 27, 2023

A mix of chilling synths and organs, guitars, and drum machines drenched in effects. Lo-fi is used as an aesthetic in both the look and the sound here. Pop songs so effected they’re bordering on no longer being simply pop songs, but rather larger sound compositions. When I used to work at a record store, this would be the kind of tape release someone would buy and later unwittingly return, complaining that it sounds “messed up” when it actually is intentional and supposed to sound that way. Either that, or my cassette deck is dying and makes this sound super sick when I play it. Either way, I’m super into it. –Mark Twistworthy (Willow House, willowhouserecordlabel.bandcamp.com)
