That’s So Unlike Me

So. Gami Gang by Origami Angel. One of the best albums of the year, one of the most embarrassing albums of the year. For a record that puts such a high value on post-metal guitar riffs and speed-freak drumming, it’s lyrics are real “let’s sign each other’s yearbooks / we’ll be friends forever / this summer was the best days of my life / Vitamin C” shit. Very hard to square lyrics about “having the best friends” while also being 35 and getting upset any time anyone asks me to go anywhere and do anything.

And yet: it whips ass, despite itself, because of itself.
