Japanther - Don't Trust Anyone Over Thirty

Label: Tapes
Year: 2006

When I posted that No Age record a few days back, it reminded me of Japanther who share some sonic similarities, the fuzzy wash of guitar, the pop structures buried under a blanket of warm noise, and the disembodied vocals. Physically they share similarities to No Age as well, operating as a duo, they still manage a well-rounded amount of instrumentation. 
This particular album is a soundtrack written in conjunction with artist Dan Graham for a puppet show (yes...a puppet show) of the same name. The puppet show (repeating...puppet show) is a political satire telling the story of a 22 year old man who is elected president of the United States. As told by puppets. In a puppet show.
Of course, being over thirty myself, I'm not sure if you can trust anything you have read thus far. Be advised.

An Excellent Blog. I have re-discovered many forgotten treasures and also discover things that must have past me by at the time. Could you post the first two Calvin Krime 7"'s (Pretty in Pink) and (Kids Incarcerated) if you have them.
