Bad Bad Dinosaur is a new album from a band called “The Jolly Pops.” First off let me just say that aesthetically this sort of thing is right up my alley. It’s indie, avant garde and quirky. Very difficult to pigeonhole into an actual genre though. The songs aren’t fluffy indie pop. They’re more rock ‘n’ roll, with the heaviness varying from track to track. The songs feature oddball lyrics, animal noises (with tracks like I Want a Puppy,) etc. This album is just plain wild. The technical musiciansmanship here is also excellent. Often times artists who make humorous or “fun” music will sacrifice technical proficiency for entertainment, but that’s not the case here. These musicians are pros. My favorite song on the album is probably Morning Swim, but I wouldn’t even know what to compare it to. It has a kind of lounge-pop feel to it. Anyway, be sure and check out this album if you like bands like The Aquabats. This band doesn’t sound like them, but the music gives off similar vibes.
