Graham Repulski - man pop (2010, Shorter)

Coming from Weehawken, New Jersey, Graham Repulski's debut album falls between the lo-fi of Guided by Voices and the weirdness of Chris Knox. "Man Pop" sounds like planet Earth never reached 1990.

The record sleeve uses the usual collage technique and only one (with an acoustic guitar) of the thirteen songs escape the electric guitar / bass / drums / vocals rule. None of these songs strikes as an ultimate hit single, but none is weak and two could have been seen as lo-fi gems when the style was still popular : "Hood Motor, Revolution", "Blopping Around".

Maybe he is just unfrozen after twenty years stuck in a glacier?
