My Education: Bad Vibrations (strange attractors audio house)
release: June 10, 2008
style: sleepy instrumental
[rating: **1/2] There's plenty of instrumental rock bands that like to start quiet, then build up and eventually take the form of noise. Yea, My Education does this too, integrating jazz and country via pedal steel, piano and viola. So you can definitely put this Texas band alongside Japancakes, though My Education is less country and noisier, aside from the pretty title track at the end. Nice background music. You'll probably hear it on my interadio show to wind down. Bad Vibrations includes a track titled "Sluts and Maniacs." What the fudge? These guys are f*cking psycho! Run away! -Kenyon
