Chocolate USA-All Jets Are Gonna Fall Today

Filed under: Albums — Teddy @ 12:02 am

I really can’t put a genre on this album, so I’m just going to call it Indie.


Most of the time I listen to an album and have a fairly basic idea of what’s going on. Well, Chocolate USA is one of the rare exceptions. This album comes from Elephant 6 member, Music Tapes member, and Neutral Milk Hotel member Julian Koster. This was his first real music project; he formed the band when he was in high school. I really can’t describe the album, it’s all over the place. A good amount of songs sound like The Magnetic Fields, otherwise I don’t know. After every song or so there is a spoken word part done by what sounds like an elderly lady. Koster’s high school influence shines through with the spoken word parts and just general nonsensical lyrics. There’s a good amount of experimentation, utilizing high pitched voices and silly lyrics. The last song (not the hidden) is a prank call track, I’ll let you just listen to it. If you like weird music, I mean really weird music, download this album.
