Where’s Kevin by Joyframe (Kent Ohio)
“Where’s Kevin,” nods to 80’s and 90’s lo-fi alternative bands like Ohio’s own Guided By Voices while remaining truly unique. Its depth is heard though unorthodox chord structures, simple, driving yet refined bass lines, and focused use of girl/guy vocal aesthetics. This album was recorded over two days in Cleveland, Ohio but nothing on this album was rushed. The songwriting pair of Courtney and Caleb worked on these songs well over a year, adding intellectual layers that aren’t disguised behind vague allusions but rather shoved in your face.
