No Monster Club

No Monster Club, formerly Donald Duck Dispensary, is one Bobby Aherne, from Dublin, and he is making rather enjoyable one-man sunny pop music. Bobby, jaunty, optimistic, pick yr adjective, it is rather appropriate for the warming up weather. Considering the bleepy 8-bit melodies, the twee delivery, and colorful presentation, the stars were aligned for me to absolutely HATE this, but i actually rather like it. Considering how much fuzzy lo-fi pop music with 'tropical' accouterments, like shakers, bird calls, and such, it is easy for this kind of thing to get lost in the shuffle, to sink in the mix. But i feel there is a sincerity here, and it is pretty fun, feel-good music.
Below, i've posted a couple mp3s to check out, links swiped from one Seizure Chicken (awesome blog title, btw,) seeing as how my uploading has been rather finicky lately. So check out their site, as well. No Monster Club will be releasing Tropical Decibels Vol. 1 and 2 on Cass/Flick in the foreseeable future, so keep yr peepers peeled.
Thanks to Bobby for getting in touch. Keep up the good work, mate.
