TREASURE MAMMAL: Grammy Nominated: LP

If this were the early aughts, this band would be a drop in a sea of ironic joke acts singing ironic jokey jokes while a bunch of hipsters grinned broadly, shouting “that’s so random” into each other’s ears over the ironically cheesy eighties synth. With a welcome distance from the ubiquity of the hipster irony of previous decades, I’m way more forgiving of an act like this. I even chuckled here and there, but that doesn’t make it any less desperate and annoying. –Craven Rock (Related)
