Little Fyodor and Babushka
3 out of 5 Stars
The “weird” category that Little Fyodor filed their newest eight-song album under on bandcamp doesn’t begin to really tap into the absurdity of the recording. The low-fi experimental punk sounds almost like something Sponge Bob and his buddy Patrick would record during a drunken late-night episode — complete with funny Zappa-esque samples and theatrics. Truly Rejected will never win an award for beautiful music, but in celebrating all that is out-there, crazy, and just downright weird, the album is a smashing success of campy wackiness — a perfect storm of nerdcore and deranged intellectualism.
