"Not Convinced Yet"

Self-released

Televisionaries' homeboys Aretheyyestheyare take surf a few clicks weirder than what we're used to hearing in our hang-ten-friendly landlocked metropolis. "Not Convinced Yet" is a four-song, quasi-primitive, guitar-fueled EP done with old school, perfunctory recording techniques. It's cool, but the techniques threaten to drown the tune out a bit. It sounds as if some of the recordings were done in a closet with the microphones on the outside. And that's okay; I f***ing love it. That's exactly when you look to the mayhem at the heart of the music that cuts loud with plenty of sleaze — but not as a cop out. "Not Convinced Yet" is an excellent mash-up of classic, rock-based shenanigans, with electronic decorations sprinkled throughout.
