REVIEW | Drop Photo drops Polaroid

There has been a new album thrust into the local post-rock, post-folk, post-everything music scene by true punk band Drop Photo, dubbed Polaroid. Recognizing the world’s loss of recognition for original works and songwriting, Drop Photo’s first song on the playlist, “Righteous,” analyzes the issue with a chorus insinuating theft and overdue credit. The singer, Jordan Ett, projects feelings of insignificance undeserved with an interrogational chorus asking:

Aren’t you proud of me? I’m a prodigy. All you want are the hands that created a half-assed symphony…They won’t remember me 30 years down the line. They’ll call it a masterpiece, you’ll call it your energy. You don’t know me.

There has been a new album thrust into the local post-rock, post-folk, post-everything music scene by true punk band Drop Photo, dubbed Polaroid. Recognizing the world’s loss of recognition for original works and songwriting, Drop Photo’s first song on the playlist, “Righteous,” analyzes the issue with a chorus insinuating theft and overdue credit.

This album has been described by his fans as his first serious work. While not marketed to anyone in particular, a definite shift in levels and tone has taken place in comparison to his earlier pieces. Whether it’s simply better recorded or that structure on a whole has been considered for the first time, the difference between this and his last album is marked by a significant improvement.

His EP in preparation for this is just as wholly complete, only set apart in amount of tracks on disc. Looking at their progress, you should begin to expect some very nice songs from these artists (Now with live drums!), all the while remembering the key to enjoying their music–it isn’t meant for only you. They put out what they enjoy working on. Some songs are funny, some aren’t, but art is art and they’ve made it clear enough that they don’t mind how it’s seen, if it’s seen at all.

That being said, don’t be afraid that it’s too artsy for you, their singer is as big of a joker as the rest of us, all you have to do is enjoy it.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy, so go ahead and have a listen.

See you on the flip side, music lovers!
