Stupid Times

by Boogie Reverie

American pop star Boogie Reverie is back, and in a killing mood...All four of these songs are clever, subversively catchy, snotty, and mean-spirited to the max! What a rude bastard! Parental discretion is advised.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After the smooth spiritual experimental pop of his debut, American pop star Boogie Reverie's Stupid Times EP is certainly a rather rude awakening. Rather than expanding on the somewhat cryptic and esoteric 'wall-of-sound' vibe of Prest, Reverie is very straightforward here...one might even say brutal! Sonically, Reverie manifests an overall tight, bouncy, and warm pop-punk sound to enhance his excessively sarcastic, mocking, and snotty lyrics, creating a balanced feel that only sporadically veers into the realm of confrontational or threatening territory. All four songs stand well on their own, but the stand-out here is the unbelievably mean-spirited psychiatric mess of a song "How It Goes (That's Love, Buddy)". Within a bizarre series of explosive mood swings, something strangely beautiful erupts within the ugliness of this song. It violently shifts from jazz to boogie-woogie to punk to metal to pop in a very short period of time without ever seeming long-winded, forced, or pedantic. The opener "Hip", a shiny new-wavy pop-punk melodic dream, seduces the listener in it's consumerist sheen while brutally exploiting a jaded and complacent youth culture, and then unexpectedly launches into gritty macho 70's hard rock as Reverie yells "Hip! Hip! Hip! Hip! Hip! Hip! Hip! Hip! Blah blah blah blah blah!"...and just when you think the song can't get any more ridiculous, it returns to pop-punk land with a barrage of bizarre key changes to an unholy riot of a refrain..."eating shit, drinking piss, licking asshole and sucking dick". Absurd. Also clever and quite entertaining, but certainly an acquired taste. Elsewhere we have cheap neglectful women, substance abuse, plenty of anger, and high levels of anxiety, all projected with a keen sense of (quite dark) humor! A highly recommended addition. No one could have predicted such a departure in style! Who on earth knows what Boogie Reverie will try next! Only time will tell, as his next full-length record will be available in early April!
