Songs From The Golden One (Vinyl)
Not yet reviewed.
Songs from The Golden One feature ten cuts of borderline-John Maus cosplay with spasms of pop-punk absurdity. Thomas uses the gothy, nasal vocal drone as a tool of comic detachment to cover the funny-'cause-its-true territory of awkward sex, crippling insecurity, the shame of ambition, and the long tail of abandonment traumas.
Each song is a capsule of initial therapy breakthroughs: those realization zingers where suddenly it all makes sense how each fucked variable from then makes up the weird shit of now. When you see it all for what it is, it looks like some sick, clever joke from the universe, driving you desperate to revise the comedy so that if you have to be reality's punchline, at least you can write the jokes.
Original tracks from the special include the shimmering, synthyeuphoria of Eat You Out, a glorious admission to performance anxiety and the ol' magician's cloak of cunnilingus move. There's The Codependent Enabler, a whole jungle gym of toxic relationship rationale where "I can only get it up if you are down," and the sadboysobriety anthem Partied to Death, about when you're young in LA and you have to tell people that you're not "Cali sober for wellness," you're sober because your mom actually died from addiction.
