Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The Moldy Peaches' Adam Green and Kimya Dawson are the scourge of shoe-gazer's everywhere: extrovert indie rock chameleons who channel their awkward social skills into a scatological satire that dwells on botulism, wannabe boyfriends, Internet porn and street drugs. Their wry debut album, Moldy Peaches, is so lo-fi it sounds like a genuine bedroom production (at one point you can even hear a telephone ringing in the background). The record absent-mindedly skips genres the way kids click TV channels, from fragile acoustic folk and savant hip-hop to amplified garage punk sing-a-longs and back again. Backed by a whisper of guitar, recorder and off-key backing vocals, "Nothing Came Out"--Kimya's confessional about an unrequited love--is almost touching--almost. Until she gets to the cutting punchline: "And besides, you're probably holding hands with some skinny, pretty girl that likes to talk about bands." There's the debased blues-rock stomp of "Downloading Porn with Davo", while "Steak for Chicken" is a calculatingly inept duet featuring two different sets of lyrics sung simultaneously. Full of outrageous throw-away lyrics (like Adam's "Who mistook the crap for genius/Who is going to stroke my penis") that demand repeat listens, the Moldy Peaches smell like a cult band in the making. --Chris Campion

5.0 out of 5 stars sooper dooper! 9 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
i am still not entirely sure how i came to find out about this strange, but beautiful band. however whilst i try and remember that, i shall tell you (because i feel it is my duty) just how great this album really is. it may sound a bit shabby and homemade at times, and it may often feel like the singing duo are being unsincere at the most sensitive and heartfelt times. however it is just this that makes the mouldy peaches debut album so refreshingly different and enjoyable. their music is so simple but not at one point during the album is it ever dull. these guys also switch their genre in practically every song, going from lo-fi indie to punk rock in a couple of tracks.
without doubt this is my personal favourite of the year. however i would say the mouldy peaches are an aquired taste and some people may not like them as much as others. they are an underground band who thrive on being out of the mainstream, and it is clear that they never set out to conquer the music business. watch out for the bunny rabbit and robin hood!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful lo-fi 25 Mar 2003
Format:Audio CD
I had friends before I bought this album, now I have none. They all left after a few months of me running around place screaming 'I'm just your average Thundercats Ho' and 'We hate dance and we hate rap/but we like to contradict ourselves/that's a rap'. Actually, that's not true at all, but it wouldn't be a bad trade-off.
The fact is, despite, or more likely because of, its terrible production values, this album is listenable, fun, funny and at times moving. From the heady beginnings of 'Lucky No.9' through the tragicomic 'Nothing Comes Out' and the wonderful bad-taste of 'Who's Got the Crack', Kimya and Dawson demonstrate that rarest of all things -- a willingness to try something new.
The style of this album is characterised as anti-folk, but in fact the duo show a suprising willingness to dabble in any and all possible styles. There seems to have been some really enjoyment had in the recording of this record, and that really shows through. Though it's not musically flawless, or even musically accomplished, there isn't one point in this album where that matters. The fact is, this band have created a new sound that's as important and unique as and band before them. For that reason alone, this albums is worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...And if you thought the cd was great... 20 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Vinyl
The Moldy Peaches are a great band. Listen for yourself. And the amazing thing is they sound great live! They played with the Strokes in San Francisco and they did not play acoustic, as is on some of the songs on the cd. The opening track, "Lucky Number Nine" sounded great live, and electric. Their music is entertaining, and they dress up very strange--I love them. They played a song that is not included on the album that was hilarious, it talked about, "You gotta have rain..to have a rainbow." Very reminiscent of "Who's Got The Crack?" Please check them out for yourself. Just imagine The Pixies "Surfer Rosa" released as a demo. This band is original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fuzzy production makes for good listening! 21 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Im not one to believe everything i read but Ive gotta say that everything that ive read about the Moldy Peaches is true!! Their lo-fi, fuzzy sound gives the music a totally honest and earnest feel that you cant help but like!! Stand out trax are Who's got the Crack and 'Nothing Came Out' but the whole album is wicked. If you liked the Breeders and all that sorta stuff then Moldy Peaches are the most logical progression.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the Indie Cindy 6 Feb 2014
By Amy
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This combo won't be for everyone. Adam Green and Kimya Dawson are 'indie' artists in their own right: with "deep and meaningful" lyrics spoken with an echo of teenage angst - something anyone over twenty-five might hate.

I personally like the lack of polish to their tracks - its all very 'we just sang this in our basement one rainy day' and all the tracks sound very similar, but its an album you can listen to all the way through.

If you liked the music in Juno or Adventureland etc. then you'll probably like this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Some nice songs but an acquired taste 23 May 2013
By DPVC
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are some nice songs on this and anyone familiar with the Juno movie will find some of the songs on here (Kim Dawson is part of this group and contributed to the soundtrack, in particular the ending song). There are some nice, lo-if songs and Dawson and Green make a good double act. It's not a consistent album, acoustic numbers peppered with noise and distortion. Lyrically different too. I'd download a few songs before buying, just to get used to them...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Moldy Peaches 12 Dec 2011
By hocks
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My son introduced me to a song by this group in a compilation of his favourite songs. At first the tune just didn't catch my ear but then it started to grow on me... like "mold" on a peach. i just love them now; they are so off the wall.
