Opossom – Electric Hawaii

If you were to take the DIY aesthetic of any lo-fi buzzband circa 2009-2010, jam it in a blender with Pet Sounds-era Beach Boys and proceed to garnish the chunky froth it spat out with a sliver of The Flaming Lips, you would have New Zealand’s Opossom.

Despite the intended (and assumed) deliciousness, their debut album, Electric Hawaii is a bore. The only time my ears perked up was when I mistook track five as The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late) by David Seville and those kooky anthropomorphic striped squirrels.
