Boomkat Product Review:
It seems like a long, long way from releasing music on Miami's Schematic imprint, but Dino Felipe has arrived at hallowed noise imprint No Fun, with a collection of songs that's entirely devoid of the hi-tech glitchery his background would prompt you to expect. Nor is this a conventional No Fun release though: Felipe has assembled a set of home-recorded songs (proper songs at that) and lo-fi sketches, resulting in one of the most listenable albums ever to find a home on Carlos Giffoni's headache-inducing label. 'Stuck On You' is a great place to start, sounding sloppy and rather hard to decipher, yet incredibly tuneful at the same time. Next, 'Working on Not' is more obviously no wave influenced, unleashing drum machine rhythms and mucky, shoddily recorded guitars. The one-man post-punk of 'Rockin' The Ark' is a real hoot too, all trebly and out of tune, it has a certain early '80s-style charm. In the record's gentler moments there's just as much enjoyment to be had: Felipe sings a bit like Daniel Johnston on 'Found 2 Photos', and 'Willow Waly' might be regarded as a lulling ballad in certain circles. It's the deformed, low grade rock & roll that really proves to be the defining feature of this album though, and there's an ace alt. rock thump to the likes of 'Chandeliers (by: Haunted House)' and the discordant synth cut 'What's Wrong With Me?'. While the idea of actual songs might sound like a clear step away from the more radical inclinations of No Fun, this is far from run of the mill.
