Art and Music offers a thoughtful and highly energetic strain of psychedelic art pop. Quite creative, they draw from classic rock and lo-fi in equal measure, creating a world full of tremendous passion. Lyrics have a defiant air to them while they draw from a wide variety of sources, going from the Athens Elephant6 label’s aesthetic to East River Pipe’s earnestness. Perfectly balanced the pieces appear to be transmitted from a completely different universe. By far the heart and soul comes from the surreal lyricism, possessing a bit of poetry and literary references for good measure. Art and Music virtually demands to be played at the highest possible volume for the songs feel all-consuming.
