7/10 Staff review, 26 March 2015

This weeks winner for madcap direction change goes to Dustin Payseur from Beach Fossils who puts away his jangling C86 guitars and instead concentrates on something that sounds like a more sober take on the nascent They Might Be Giants electronic quirk-pop. Paper (sorry Payseur) has a nice croon on him not unlike the one John Flansburgh sometimes utilises. He sings over bontempi/casio type compositions which bounce along in a very agreeable manner. It’s the same kind of goofy yet heartfelt pop made by not altogether 80’s types like the Farmers Boys.

Opener ‘Wastoids’ tells you all you need to know, I suspect all the instrumentation comes from the same machine but Payseur utilises it well, having this rich a voice certainly helps but he knows his way around an unusual chord change. Really enjoyable home made pop music.
