Slightly more produced, yet no less ragged than their debut AppetiteCanadian duo Walter TV 's sophomore LP Blessed is a pastiche of tone-bright art-pop and lo-fi garage slack.
While it's true that Walter TV 's fluttering, four-track psych romps share certain similarities with DeMarco 's woozy stoner pop, they continue to cut their own path on the ten-song Blessed. The ample tape hiss, stick-click count-offs, loose outros, and overall homemade nature of the recording belies the detailed song construction on standout tracks like "Candles," "Walter's Kaya," and the roughshod but clever "Fan.
Similarly, the guitars have a sharp bite that wavers between shimmery and shrill. In fact, the all-consuming lo-fi aesthetic almost feels like a third bandmember and at its most severely employed, can either come off as charming "Paranormal Witness" or just irritating "Punk Song".
Ultimately, Walter Youre The Nearest Thing To Heaven - Johnny Cash - The Man In Black seem to take themselves seriously enough to write some interesting and artfully hooky pop Cmon now - Walter TV - Blessed , though their ramshackle presentation demands that listener will have to put up with their intentionally raw shenanigans in order to enjoy them.
