It It - Formal Odors (Cassette)

Trying to reason with a band blatantly pushing insanity is futile, especially as it doesn’t seem that the Pennsylvanian experimental pop outfit understand their antics themselves. The initial draw, and biggest indicator that IT IT are crazy, is the eclectic sampling that fills every crack and crevice of the record, and the fact that they don’t make a lick of sense. Surely, their purpose is something more than just quirky space fillers, as their inclusion strengthens the record sonically in ways otherwise impossible with a more sensical songwriting approach. In no way is this a detriment to the quality of Formal Odors as a whole, though. On the contrary, IT IT succeed perfectly well with solid, thoroughly enjoyable craftwork that nails its intended image. Most importantly, despite the aforementioned, Formal Odors isn’t all insanity and madness. While the spastic sampling is the album’s definitive hook, it’s the calmer moments that are the record’s line and sinker.
