Castiotone for the Painfully Alone – Etiquette
Acquired: CFTPA show, Jackpot Saloon, 2007
This is the best Casiotone for the Painfully Alone album and everybody knows that. “Scattered Pearls” is the only song I can properly dance to, and on this record Owen Ashworth’s songwriting reaches new peaks. It’s just a fucking outstanding record. It really never lets up, every song here is a jam and it closes with a cover of the best Parenthetical Girls song ever, so yeah. It reminds me of the summer of 2007. It takes music that should have always been lo-fi and puts a higher production value on it and I think that something really special about this album, because it works really, really, really, really, really, really well. Anyway, I don’t know what else to write about this. Listen to it right now. Some things are best left unsaid.
