REVIEW: Velma and the Happy Campers-Somebody Should Give That Guy A Hug
An ode to the era of Shrimper cassettes has arrived in the assortment of lo-fi bliss that is Somebody Should Give That Guy A Hug. Its short as fuck–there’s 4 songs and the whole thing is over in less than 3 minutes–and the songs are catchy folk dirges with occasional clatter going on over top. “The Bridge of the River Chipola” is easily the most beautiful song heard in recent memory and details the need to destroy the Peacock Bridge. If I’m ever in Florida I might take a swing at it.
