Hail The Size
"Side Two" CDEP
Genre: comedy rock, Americana,
This comedy music duo of Charles Ezell and
Matt North (apparently the William Morris Agent on Curb Your
Enthusiasm) plays unspectacular pop songs of varying levels of
country influence. The charm, however, lies in the lyrics - which are
the work of Ezell, a former writer for The Roseanne Barr Show.
"Booze, Pills, & Her" is an Americana-tinged song about drinking,
drugs, and domestic violence. "Mean Means I Love You" continues the
domestic violence tradition with a country mood, meanwhile "I Can't
Hold It In" adds a bossa nova beat to a giggly love song. Slow ballad
"The 7/11 Song" is a bit of a toss-off, though "The Ass Kicking Song"
has a considerable amount of charm behind it. Overall, this humour
isn't really laugh-at-loud funny, and I'm not sure how much money
you'd really want to spend on this EP, but there's certainly a decent
amount of enjoyment to be obtained from it. Interesting.
