�We like to contradict ourselves�that�s our act,� sing the Moldy Peaches. Very true indeed, as they go from acoustic folk tunes to screaming garage riots. The duo of Kimya Dawson and Adam Green may seem like a couple of innocent junior high schoolers as they sing about video games, cartoons, BMX bikes, breakfast cereal, and even cover the popular preschool hit �Little Bunny Foo Foo,� but don�t be fooled. Around the next corner, the innocence disappears completely on songs like �Who�s Got the Crack� and �Downloading Porn With Davo� where prostituting oneself for drugs is the name of the game. Put it all together and hilarity ensues. The Moldy Peaches are witty and sarcastic. They know how to poke fun at themselves, and even pull it off sweetly enough to make the crowd go �awww�� For instance, in �Nothing Came Out,� Dawson sings, "And besides, you're probably holding hands/With some skinny pretty girl who likes to talk about bands/And all I want to do is ride bikes with you/And stay up late, and watch cartoons."
Some songs are just plain weird (�These burgers are crazy!�), and the rough, homegrown, 4-track recording style�complete with occasional screaming fits and telephones ringing in the background�mirrors the style of young Midwestern indie rocker Bright Eyes, only less angsty and fairly insincere. In fact, they share as much with Bright Eyes� fuzzy sound as with the ridiculous sound of the Flaming Lips.
The Moldy Peaches are part of the New York Anti-Folk scene, which has included many modern songwriters such as Beck, Michelle Shocked, and Chris Barron of the Spin Doctors. Note: Barron actually lends a hand to the Moldy Peaches on this album.
The music is raw and deliberately sloppy, both sweet and garagey, but the real gem is the lyrics.

I just bought the album the other day and I can honestly say that it is one of the best albums I've bought all year. It isn't because it is something new or original, but because it is what music should be about. Having fun and not taking it too seriously. The songs are catchy and often funny in that "I wrote this in study hall today" way. What astounds me is the fact that everyone seems to think that it has never been done before. "Who's Got the Crack" sounds exactly like something The Frogs would have written. The sound of the album is horrible, but the lyrics are honest and witty. The Frogs + (early) Kleenex Girl Wonder + (a little bit) of the Vasalines = The Moldy Peaches.

Since being played on a radio show ...I have been trying to find this album. I eventually found it and bought it on the strength of 1 song. It has since proven an inspired investment. The songs are both lyrically and melodically crafted in a way that will leave you with a smile on your face after every track. The lyrics are some of the cleverist I have heard and you may even get caught laughing out loud to lines like: scrinched up your face and did a dance/shook a little turd out of the bottom of your pants. Whimsical, funny, quite simply one of the best albums I have encountered in years, will have you dancing and grinning from ear to ear

I'm desperately in love with the Moldy Peaches. If I could sing or write or play guitar, I'd want to do it like they do -- heartfelt, but having fun and being silly and really catchy. The album has a great did-it-in-our-basement sound which makes the craftsmanship of the songs and the witty lyrics all the more impressive. I mean, they use the old Nintendo cheat code as a lyric -- "Up up down down left right left right B A start/ Just because we use cheats doesn't mean we're not smart". I've seen the Moldy Peaches open for other bands before packed, indifferent crowds and win them over with their funny, dirty, loverly songs. Highest possible recommendation.
