These songs are best viewed as a collection of lyrical and vocal experiments. Of course the instruments and the music are important, but this album is held together by a dialogue of voices. Conversations with myself and with others. Several tracks contain lyrical contributions from friends and strangers, made possible with the help of the internet.But a picture is worth a thousand words—or in this case, an album stream is worth far more than any further description a music journalist can provide. Hooray, I'm irrelevant! Listen to all of Broderick's new record after the jump, while I take the rest of the day off.
