Mailorder Midgets -
I'm all for novel approaches to music, but the Mailorder Midgets Self-titled ep sounds like someone
watched Adult Swim for 24 hours
straight, then decided to take MC Chris' vocals and layer them on top
of the Postal Service. Either that or the fact that one man and a Casio
worked so well for the Bloodhound Gang in "A Lapdance Is Always Better
When the Stripper Is Crying" just spoke to someone.
Not to be a complete and utter music fascist, but while I might be able
to appreciate a lot of music under "it's good if you like that sort of
thing", this album isn't even something like that. It's not that it's
god-awful, it's just that the Mailorder Midgets are so far left-field
that I can't even begin to think who might be into this.
The cd might work wonders in a cheesy way, as it almost functions as a
parody of itself. Still, I am just at a complete and utter loss as to
why anyone would listen to the Self-titled
ep and then want to hand
over hard-earned money for it.
