Editorial Reviews

Early in the first track on Scattered Smothered Covered, the new album by Appetite, Teddy Briggs sings, ''songs keep writing themselves'' and the resulting collection of music seems to do exactly that. It is a testament to the sense of musical ease and fluency this 27-year-old Californian creates with this record. Originally conceived as a project to, as Briggs simply puts it, ''try and make songs all by myself,'' Appetite has flourished on this new disc, conjuring songs buoyed by a spirit that vibrates with the influences of downtempo electronica, hip-hop, Tropicalia, and the far-reaching sonics of Can, early Mercury Rev, and certain shades of Beck. These are songs that reveal layers upon layers for the headphone listener or just provide a nice bed of gorgeous sound for you to rest upon.

Format: Vinyl
The best thing about this music is that it is unexpected and surprising, and yet still tuneful. It definitely gets into your head and stays with you. The melodies and rhythms and harmonies always take the unexpected turn--just when you think you know where a song is going, it changes up on you. Makes you want to listen again and again so the tune in your head matches what you heard. The lyrics are strange, extremely evocative of a time and place--the lyrics put you someplace you have been before, and in that place they really speak to you, though obliquely. Think Brian Wilson with Van Dyke Parks ("Surf's Up", etc.) But really this is not like anything you have heard before--it may remind you of something, but it seeks its own space in your ears. The more you listen, the more you find to like. If you don't already wonder how music that all sounds the same gets on the radio time and again, and why unique but tuneful music is largely left off the airwaves, Appetite certainly will make you ask that question. This is challenging music, but still fun to listen to. Well produced and really a great listen worth many returns.
