Prints - "Just Thoughts" CDEP

Well-spacey modern pop (not in terms of 'radio-friendly', but in listenability, hummability and tunefulness) from a couple of guys whose love of music is reflected in this set of 4 quirky dance-pop tunes. I am reminded of such studio rats as the Flaming Lips or Ween, with their predilection for woozy arrangements, funky sounds, and seemingly nonsensical subject matter. The final track here, 'Pretty Tick Meditation (Thee Loving Hand Remix)', combines two earlier Prints tracks and is presented in a bouncy and tight Tim Goldsworthy (DFA/LCD Soundsystem) club mix that's laced full of electro-funk to move yo' azz. It's only 20 minutes, but Prints leave quite a colorful impression. (Temporary Residence)
