The Underground Railroad to Candyland-The People Are Home

LP Finally out!! (and add a full color URTC slip mat for only $5! Limited!
CD/Digital/Cassette out now.

The Underground Railroad to Candyland is a gloriously democratic, technicolor chaos machine.

“That’s the one phrase I was able to write down after three weeks of listening to this record. I kept circling around it, trying to find another angle at this review, but that was all I could come up with and I’m still not sure you wouldn’t be better off if I simply posted it alone. This isn’t one of those bands that has one musical hero who saturates the entire ethos. Instead, the songs on The People Are Home swirl with influences from everywhere, without being a slave to any. There are big rock choruses you might expect to hear from early Mission of Burma, crashing in-the-red percussion that could fit nicely on a Built to Spill album, goofball post-apocalyptic punk attitude that seems to come from Half Japanese, and that wonderful jangle guitar tone that reminds me of The Only Ones. It’s all here, and in a perfectly chaotic balance throughout the record. I could apply any number of genre buzz words to this sound; lo-fi, garage, psychedelic, punk, DIY, jangle pop, etc., etc., etc. Again, I don’t think any of them do the band and their sound proper justice.”

I could imagine this project starting off as a joke but goddamn! When I was in high school someone handed me a tape with Discharge’s “Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing”album on one of the sides. Shit ain’t no joke!
