PAVID VERMIN: Cutting Corners: CD

This jovial, upbeat album had me immediately thinking “like a pop punk Beatles,” which is on-brand because all the song titles are taken from Abbey Road. The songs are all originals, however, and have nothing to do with the Beatles other than the title. This naming convention felt silly and playful, which matches the tone of the record itself perfectly. Years of practice at home recording shine too. The record sounds professionally recorded while in reality this was recorded at home in a basement. –Lorien Lamarr (Bloated Kat, bloatedkat.storenvy.com)
