This Busy Monster

"This Busy Monster is the kind of band that derives joy from being perplexing, convoluted, even willfully obtuse, and that's what makes them great. Their songs are uneven and discordant, full of squashed structures, shifting time signatures, and damaged sounds, yet there's a great pop melody running through every one. It's a unique sound, and one that's hard to get a handle on at first. Every song ends up deliciously warped, full of moments of nervous tension and goofball nonsensical release. The elliptical, abstract, often profoundly personal lyrics complement the band's hectic, ever-changing sound wonderfully. Fabulously strange and thoroughly original stuff." (Epitonic)
