Great Grandpa: Can Opener, Plastic Cough

20 May 2018 · No Comments

“Cheeto Lust” and “Ram” from the “Can Opener” EP struck me as really good attempts to craft Speedy Ortiz songs not actually by Speedy Ortiz – guitar lines that hop around and between chords instead of linear scale movement or arpeggiation, mid-chorus sideways lurches. It pushes my buttons, but seems a little too specifically imitative. Thankfully the band has more going on than ersatz Speedy (including but not limited to an equally precise early Weezer homage). The full-length Plastic Cough is mixed by John Goodmanson, who does a typically great job of making the guitars sound awesome.
