Quilt Boy is a Detroit outsider dude, making music all by himself that toes the line between proggy excess and lo-fi noise scrabble all at once. This 7” contains five tracks of highly-messy guitar / synth / mumble skronk, and it's a wonderfully fun thing. I Am Somebody is released in a limited edition of 250 by Sophomore Lounge.
6/10 Clinton Staff review, 04 January 2017
The spirit of Bananafish magazine and all it championed lives on with these five tracks of utter mayhem that sounds something like Jad Fair given free rein over a 4 track and told to record anything....anything as quickly as humanly possible.
It's a chaotic blend of pre-teenage messing about that recalls 90's lunatics the Happy Flowers with a juvenile any anything goes approach...a weird child locked in a bedroom whilst it's parents have a dinner party downstairs. The clatter seeping through the floorboards and into the ears of horrified guests. "Just leave him to it Dave, he's not harming anyone". As it is I'm struggling to find anything with a semblance of a tune, it just wanders around in random squiggles - as if Ariel Pink grew up on Zappa and not soft rock.
Please be prepared for some hard work if you are going to listen to it.
