SLTM 2.0 Episode 22 – Claude Felder and His amazing puppets

Typhoid Rosie– THIS IS NOW- (live stream review) – Typhoidrosie.com – catchy pop music, with good female lead vocals. Blondie adjacent. Some sing a long choruses. Question, why does “Belong to Somebody” fade out like that? Its almost like someone during the mix leaned on the fader, it stuck so they went with it. Weird. Is “Broken Man” about an absent father? Someone leaving you to fend for yourself? Or am I just projecting? “Pieces” should be the single from this album. Good guitar hook.

However, unlike some croaky black metal bands, they do deliver the odd drum fill, guitar skronk or tripped over tampini to elicit a quirky nod of my head. “Multiverse Dementia”, I do like the croaking frog echo track vocals. Sounds almost drippy. Cool effect. “Timeless Formless” starts off with a guitar riff stolen from an emo band. I thought at first that my MP3 player fucked up again. Sometimes it will drop other bands into a song or jump to the next band I’m reviewing. Nope it’s still afterbirth. Also in the song there is some dude trapped in a well and I say trapped because I don’t think he fell in. He’s mad because he was put there, screaming up at those who imprisoned him there. “I may not be able to get out of here, but your day of reckoning is coming”. “Transcendental Object at the end of History” has a nice Zappa opening.
