Papa Cremp by Cherry Glazeer is a Dream Pop record.
Distant and surfy arrangements are the instrumental end of things, while a quirky female vocal spins us tales of flying cats, teenage tragedies, and Pizza Monsters.
The standout best track of the record would have to be "Bloody Bandaid", a track that has an added layer of depth that the surrounding tracks just hint at. It's a genuine depth, and it's still jokey and sounds like it was written stoned.
Every since Best Coast's 2011 release there has been a ton of this dream pop stuff coming out- usually featuring a female vocal and the reverb cranked to the max. Some of it's bad, some good, Cherry Glazeer falls into the latter category. Why is it likable? Maybe because it's executed with the light-hearted approach that the genre demands, not taking itself too seriously. It's fun and sunny, it's youthful and doesn't care. If you're not going to care, don't care. Don't care about looking like you don't care, because people will see right through that (which a lot of Dream Pop seems to do, but Cherry Glazeer doesn't).
Papa Cremp by Cherry Glazeer is available via their Bandcamp page.
