My Friend Peter: Birth-Days



So there is this awesome kid named Peter who lives down the hall from me at College. Sometimes I'll walk by his door and be all like "wtf...is Avey Tare in there? What tuning is that!?! I WANT THAT AS A DOWNLOADABLE MPEG-1 AUDIO LAYER 3!!!"

WELL HE JUST HOOKED IT THE FUCK UP! HE DONE MADE AN ALBUM! THE ALBUM IS FUCKING SWEEET :-D

I'd say it sounds kind of like...uhh...I don't know...it's pretty original. Some of the vocal melodies remind me a lot of Avey Tare but less "i'm happy and on acid!' and more "I sound happy but listen to what I am saying It isn't as simple as that!!". The instrumentation is pretty layered, possibly comparable to some Olivia Tremor Control type sprawl gone lo-fi or an Atlas Sound sans Cox's pessimistic shoe-gazer-y. I'm not too keen on going super in-depth with album summaries...basically I'm just trying to sound like I know a lot about music...basically this is a undeniably catchy, strangely euphoric, delightfully sinister (yep I'm talking about you Blue Velvet samples!), and above all HIGHLY PERSONAL album that is a clear example of why DIY and the internet and computers and guitars and Peters kick so much ass.

By the way, this kid lives down the hall from me.
