Lint!

Sexyharrassment (Panda Candy)

Does the phrase “so smart, it’s dumb” mean anything anymore? If so, you couldn’t find a more perfect example of it than Sexyharrasment, the debut full-length by an enigmatic Broomfield duo known as Lint! Swinging blindly between remedial electro-pop and Negativland-esque noise collages, vocalist/programmers Arlo White and Jason McDaniel (a member of Dario Rosa’s twisted menagerie) take cheap shots at rappers, rock groupies and Teutonic techno, mumbling and stumbling their way through songs with freakish titles like “Crazy Foam + Crazy Face = Crazy Mother, Crazy Crazy” and “nostrawberries@thistable.com.” But there’s mentation to this madness. Sure, “Jolly Bobbins” sounds like Syd Barrett disemboweling a beatbox, but it’s as cleverly infectious as a miniature They Might Be Giants — and “Number Three Combo” is a heart- (and belly-) warming tribute to “the Mom and Pop teriyaki shop/Just down the block from my house.” Of course, there’s always the possibility that Lint! is simply so dumb, it’s dumb. Either way, Sexyharrasment is irrefutably retarded…and, strangely enough, charming and catchy as hell.
