Economy (2008)

Really more of an EP than an album, this is ten short but action-packed tracks of unabashedly retro, thoroughly ironic synthesized ridiculousness. From prog rock to funk, from country to polka, and even a little unexpected headbanging here and there, you will find it here, as rendered by painstakingly-tweaked and horrifyingly irritating synthesizers. The melodies-- just as devastatingly irritating-- come at you hard and fast; don't pause the record, or you'll get one stuck in your head for the rest of the day. There are many, many worse ways you could spend 18 minutes... but I guess you could also spend it masturbating.

Quelle Fromage

BIOGRAPHY

One rare, actual project of many musical pipe dreams held by its creator, Quelle Fromage has been making very short songs with absurdly forward / straightforward melodies and funny noises on very sporadic occasion for about seven years now. It is a project that exists entirely to remind society of its many past mistakes... through the healing power of simple synthesis.

BAND MEMBERS
QF is RB, driving REAPER and a whole bunch of fake synthesizers. Oh, and he plays guitar on one song (fakes it on another) and also serves as the sampled "choir" in one other song. Yeah, that's pretty much it.
