Amoeba Review

Seth Bogart made a name for himself calling out lame boys who don’t like rock ‘n’ roll with bubblegum garage-pop gems in Hunx & His Punx. On his first solo release under his own name, Bogart ditches the guitars (mostly) for deliberately chintzy synths and drum machines on a weird, wild glitterbomb of an album. The Bay Area transplant calls out clueless L.A. people in his new adopted home in “Hollywood Squares.” An episode of “My Strange Addiction” inspires the thrift store electro-pop of “Eating Makeup,” with a totally game Kathleen Hanna stealing the show as she revolves between manic and faux naiveté. At times it feels like an art project as much as an album, which wasn’t the case with his previous work. But listen closely and you’ll hear that it’s as honest as anything he’s done. “I’m surrounded by your thoughts, but I’m not listening,” he sings amid listless synths and out-of-tune guitars on “Forgotten Fantazy,” perfectly encapsulating the feeling of being stuck in a flailing relationship while dialing up a mesh of freestyle and lo-fi. Even the chirpy “Club With Me” sneaks lyrics about feeling like a loner in the club with your headphones on into a warped take on ’90s disco pop a la Aqua. As colorful as the album is, all the makeup is just dressing on Bogart’s solid songwriting chops. With help from friends like Chela, Cherry Glazerr’s Clementine Creevy and Tavi Gevinson, Bogart’s self-titled album is a pure pleasure.
