Domestic Pop Loaf Recordings

Article written by Ged M - Dec 7, 2009

Domestic Pop compilation
Loaf Recordings’ USP is mainly experimental but playful electronica with a bit of very quirky lo-fi pop on the side (Gablé, for example). When it has vocals, they’re cool female ones (except when they’re electronic, when it sounds like R2D2 in the throes of electro-sexual ecstasy). This compilation covers the Loaf stable, from Calin’s Fischer-Price synthbeats to Omo’s ‘Advantage’, with its droll Flying Lizards-like approach to music and tennis. The Lizards are clearly an influence, as is the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, but a number of tracks seem to be ideas rather than fully fleshed out songs. The standout is undoubtedly The Chap, ‘Le Theme’ combining a ultra-catchy synthbeat with weird war-sound vocals (guns, explosions). I also have a lot of time for the brilliant 55 seconds of ‘You Don’t Rock’ by Van Zit, which is a mantra for every terrible indiepop band: “you suck ass/ you don’t rock/ your band’s shit”! It’s no frills music that’s worth dipping into.
