God is good, life is good, and everything finally makes sense.
I know, they keep me entertained :P
Librarian couple Dave Gibson and Renee Reighart have created a brilliantly nerdy music project that they call Weird Mob. And thanks to Weird Mob, we can stop wondering what the 60′s interpretation of the post-millennial sci-fi scene would’ve sounded like. Because I’m sure it would have sounded exactly like this…
They’ve taken a lo-fi indie rock sound and colored it with a childlike imagination. The synth leads are unforgivingly cheesy and the lyrics are as witty as ever. It’s great. Weird Mob is predominantly indie rock, but a spectrum of influences can be heard in their music: The electronic arrangements, for example, sound very new wave-ish in nature. And some of the melodies in their music sound like they could be from something the Beatles had written. I imagine it must be a difficult thing to achieve as a musician, but they’ve has captured the retro vibe without sacrificing modern taste or production.
Considering their caliber of music, Weird Mob has received very little acknowledgment in the music world. But hopefully their debut album ‘They’re A Weird Mob’ (which was released on February 26th) will gain them some rightfully earned attention.
My perception is diseased,
stimulation ignores my pleas.
