psapp

Here’s a bittersweet pop release that unapologetically treads away from the predictable. By focusing on layering both vintage and organic instrumentation, however, PSAPP could be incorrectly limited to “contemporary Os Mutantes” comparisons. Songs such as “I Want That” and “The Camel’s Back” display a varied songwriting range while “Parker” highlights a fixation with the Roaring Twenties. “Screws” is a touching piano ballad that allows for a brief respite from the audio circus that PSAPP so effectively conveys.
