Label: Joyful Noise Recordings
On his semi-legendary, ever-mutating cult band's first album in 13 years, proto-no-wave savant Jad Fair catches up with generations of intentionally ill-made lo-fi artists he presaged, and does it with a great big grin (seemingly because he's in love with somebody). Longer and more polyrhythmic tracks stamped by Deerhoofer John Dieterich's production -- notably Afro-beatnik nursery rhyme "Brave Enough" and abstract babbler "Do It Nation" -- get front-loaded. A caveat: In bored bubblegum demo "Overjoyed and Thankful," among other places, Fair's adenoidal tweeness may well test your tolerance.
