RUSS’ FAVORITE ALBUM OF 2011!
Funtitled by SPRAYNARD (Asian Man Records)
I first heard about SPRAYNARD from my friend Nick, who sent me a link to the YouTube video of the song “Stickin’ Together is What Good Waffles Do” from Cut & Paste. I gave it a listen, didn’t think much of it, and carried on.
A few months later, I was at Asian Man and Mike asked if I had ever heard of the band. I said yes, and explained to him that I didn’t have much interest in them. He then put on their newest record, Funtitled, and I was hooked right off the bat.
One of the biggest selling points of the album for me, was when Mike told me that people were saying they kinda sounded like LATTERMAN. I love LATTERMAN, so I figured I’d like this record.
I was wrong; I LOVED the record. All the songs are short, aggressive, and contain meaningful lyrics that still pack quite a punch. There is not one song on the record I do not enjoy. SPRAYNARD has since become my all-time favorite band and their songs and spirit mean so much to me.
