The Delicious

Recently signed to Joyful Noise Recordings, The Delicious is a Bloomington, Indiana quartet that just bug the shit out of me more with each subsequent listen. This super-fun-happy cuddle-core twaddle is not good. They want to be The Pixies. Bad. You can almost see that desperation stink wafting from every sad little note like a little green cloud floating from the music player like it was just emitted by an obnoxious cartoon character.

If you find The Shins too threatening, then this is the band for you. If you have a “Mean people suck” bumper sticker on your car, then this is the band for you. If you like music that sounds like the soundtrack cue to an ill-conceived post-ironic chase scene in your favorite feel-good indie film a la Napoleon Junoshine, then write me and tell me how wrong I am. But before sending the hate mail, remember this - not liking bad music does not make you a bad person, just a discerning one.
