WET CONFETTI - This Is So Illegal (Do It Fast) - CD - wetconfetti.com - 2004

review by: Larissa Parson

With their angular post-punk indie rock, Wet Confetti arenít breaking any new sonic boundaries. But what they do, they do well. Sounding at times like Blonde Redhead, at times like Deerhoof, and in brief seconds not unlike Sonic Youth (though I think this comparison really depends more on the fact that the band is fronted by a guy and a sometimes husky-voiced girl than on the actual sound of the music), Wet Confetti range from rhythmic noise ("Only Accidents," "Mescalero") to the mellow "Where the Sound Hits." The latter of these songs is easily the most melodic on the album, and makes an excellent closing track. While the disc can be a bit more of an intellectual than a visceral pleasure, it is enjoyable, and well worth taking the time to explore. (8/10)
