The Past, One Second At A Time

by Princess Ugly

This second album from the band Jack Rabid (The Big Takeover) called "a barely restrained, new strain of dreampop" is a tight collection of moody indie-pop sewn with threads of goth-psychedelica, the harsher side of shoegaze, and post-punk influences.
Genre: Rock: Shoegaze

Album Notes
The Past, One Second At A Time is the follow-up to Princess Ugly's well-received debut, We Knew It Was Perfect. Here, main ugly J. Christopher-Rome has brought to the table a collection of songs exploring similar themes of strained emotions, fully realized by multi-instrumentalist Christopher Moncrieffe, to create a solid experience--a compelling listen from start to finish. Ali Wesley provides backing vocals that give visions, and the whole lends itself to headphone listening; still, a few songs individually make their case to be an ideal choice for that next "mix-tape," the one where you let the songs' music and lyrics do the speaking for you. That Princess Ugly exist happily outside of the box--impervious to (or ignorant of?) current musical trends-- makes every release that much more endearing. Surely their influences are recognizable, but the end result is uniquely their own.
