Make your friends uncomfortable or angry!
on October 29, 2016
Some people just hate this stuff haha. It's not the most "relaxing" music you'll ever hear. I love the emotional distortion, punk attitude, circus-show approach, and over-the-top anti-comfort delivery. I think you'll understand why a drunk mess of a clown is who they choose for the cover...It's really unstable stuff.
On a road trip my friends I agreed that we each have to bring three albums to listen to, and no matter what we had to listen through the album and talk about it afterward. One friend chose Justice-Cross, the other chose a Dave Matthews record that made me want to tuck and roll, and then I put this on and...watching my friend go through this experience was one of the funniest things I've ever seen. He was so uncomfortable that he became angry, and eventually started yelling...it was almost a weird, objective effect put into this record that he was just reacting to. Me and my other friend refused to turn it off, of course...but afterward we had a great talk about the music, and why it's important to play with the format and not get too set in stone as far as structure, arrangement, and maybe most importantly: mood.
