It isn’t difficult to write a pop song. It’s really not. The reason mash-up artists such as Girl Talk have a genre is because modern pop’s gotten lazy. It’s hard not to mash songs together when the similarities are so apparent. This was not the case for The Unicorns in 2003 on their Alien8 debut album “Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone?”
What the Unicorns did here is something remarkable, this record goes beyond what we expect of indie pop.
