Pee-pee - Catile Jackine Is Vooded At Broonus Mousin:Vol 1 [Helmet Room Records - 2008]

Pee-pee brew up a very quirky, often highly tuneful & addictive cocktail of folk/rock, indie pop & lo-fi electronics.  Managing to stay gloriously lop-side and wonky yet surprisingly at the same time highly approachable and basically a hell of a lot of fun.

Most of the songs here are built around rapidly strummed or picked harmonic acoustic or clear electric guitar lines to which the band builds around mixture of: bright yet wonky synth textures, lo-fi electronic quirkiness,lop-sided yet lush strings & brass elements, accordion and saw, etc- which are all topped off with the singers tuneful roguish indie/folk signing. The songs all have a fairly simplistic base, but it’s the interesting quirky twists 'n' turns the band throw in that makes this so wonderful and re-playble like; sudden electronica elements, or vocoda lined side turns, avant jazz sudden freackouts and various quirky turns and slight of hands that never detract from the songs centre points, but really add to the songs shambolic often tuneful and foot slamming wonder.

Simply put the whole album is a gloriously, moorish and lovable slice of quirky pop, folk/ rock wonderfulness. That mangers to be experimental and inventive yet approachable and highly additive- really if there’s any justice in this world Pee-Pee should be huge!.
