"Lasso is the brainchild of Andy Catlin. this recording is very lo-fi, the songs are buried beneath mountains of fuzz and reverb; it sounds like something recorded through the wall of some backwards saloon, where spaghetti-western guitar licks and ragtime piano are right at place next to laptops and warped vocals. Catlin’s nasally singing voice is often obfuscated by an effects filter and the lo-fi touches, and weird ghostly sounds creep into the tracks without warning." mostly midwest
