The second album by central Florida minimalist acoustic punk band THE QUAINT.
11 songs in roughly 4 minutes. The longest song is 36 seconds. The shortest song is 1 second (spoiler: it’s about Jen Sändwich’s friend Dougie Jones).
This makes the first album by the Quaint sound like a Bull of Heaven album, and the first EP by the Meat Puppets sound like the Grateful Dead (that’s because they are and junk. also "Jesus" by the Velvet Underground is actually by the Grateful Dead, just ask Hal McGee himself).
Recorded at the tail end of March 2019. Produced, mixed, and mastered on a rainy day inside of a black hole by the son of a hearing aid salesman.
"Kopp Out" was originally "Kopp Killer" but then Rob Lorei got his job back at WMNF the day after the song was written, so I guess he's alright.
"Burgled" is about eating brown Kool-Ade and why you shouldn't do that and junk. By the way, it was FLAVOR-ADE *pushes glasses up against my face* That's like saying Converse sneakers will get you a free ride on a hippie van trailing behind an asteroid or some shaving cream. This song was conceived while stuck in traffic on the way to the grocery store.
"Sugar Cubs": even Satan is terrified of them. Another song originally conceived in a car while waiting at a red light.
"Ordinary Guy" was originally written in 2005 and has been in developmental hell since 2006 until just a few days before it was re-recorded for the umpteenth time some 13 years later.
"Water is Wet" - Did you know that the president known as Donal Trum is a BAD PERSON? Here's your minutely reminder.
"Dougie Jones" - Dream Theater could never dream of writing anything as lengthy, complex, and intricate as this here song.
On a side note, every track from the Quaint's self-titled debut (written and recorded the year before) has been remastered and sounds less like it was recorded in a potato in a beehive in a trashcan in a dishwasher on the moon inside of the sun. You can stream it here:
YA KNOW, ONE OF THESE DAYS THESE RELEASES MAY SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY ON EITHER A LATHE-CUT OR EVEN FULL BLOWN WAX!!!
I started recording "noise music" in early 2004, completely unaware of any "scenes" or other individuals doing this sort of thing. A lot of lo-fi recordings on a portable tape player, oftentimes guitar or bass feedback drone and delay.
