So, some of my favorite albums contain the weirdest music available, such as Incredible Moses Leroy (Electric Pocket Radio), Beck singles (Halo of Gold), Grandaddy (Our Dying Brains) to name a few. Well this album certaintly fills out my need for more of the quirky music in my collection. Like a Duck is great (check out the video online) and is quite a musical jubilation. Should we discuss Beck influences? Besides the obvious 3 turntables and 2 microphones, Hung Up has the same sort of sweet flow that Beck's "Clock" has, oh yeah. What a Bringdown is another Highlight, as well as "My Bad Seed" -I'm kinda stuck on "My Bad Seed" actually. "The Baby That Was You" is extremely weird, and almost sounds like it samples a NIN song of all things: The Perfect Drug. While the lyrics are beyond stupid, the song works just by juxtaposing the NIN beat with the lyrics and some other cool effects (barking dogs, crying babies, cell phones, lalala choirs, etc.) The rest is kinda filler: "Soft Velvety 'Fer" is a weird monologue with someone leaving messages on answering machines like the scene found in Swingers, but the culprit is a female in this one and the stuff is much more strange. The album is a skewed mess of randomly cool music, check it out.

Think "United Future Organization", mixed with some "Fat Boy Slim", a pinch of "Dandy Warhols", and all layered on top of a 60's flick soundtrack. And it's more "Self" than it is "Beck". It's campy & fun; it makes a great accompaniment for a casual cocktail hang or as a rush hour drive blues-buster.
