Fels records short (real short - there are 15 songs in under 30
minutes here) little pop songs that are funnier than they are
catchy. But that's alright, because the emphasis on his debut
album, I've Made My Bed And Now I'm Lying In It, is clearly on
For example, "Never Leaving the House Again" is a
disgruntled and resentful song in which Fels explains that he's
going to stay in his house forever; as he says, "when the groceries
run out, that means my time is up." Meanwhile, "Shake
It Around " is all about killing oneself - except it's done in a
light-hearted, funny way ("Put your head in the oven/Turn on the
gas/If it doesn't work/Gotta light a match") that will bring a
grim smile to your face.
Simple melodies, so-so vocals, and funny lyrics make up Jerry
Fels' I've Made My Bed..., and it isn't nearly as bad as
you'd think it would be. Try it if you're into lo-fi.
