Lou Kelly is an eclectic California musician who, much like Mike Patton, never seems content to stick with any one style... or even a common thread between albums. I had previously praised him for making one of my favorite releases of 2018 in the mathcore-infused orchestrations of The Vulgarian Philharmonic. He now follows that up with something best described in his own words: "A fake revue musical soundtrack about a hedonistic, purposeless city that God forgot. Each song is a glimpse at the various lives swallowed by Junk City. Musically speaking, I was trying to go for a generally sleazy blend of punk(ish) rock, swing, kitschy jazz with a vaguely pop-like sensibility (scum pop, if you will)." That about sums it up. Listen to the madness below.
