Yumi Zouma "Truth Or Consequences (Polyvinyl)"
Oh man, if you like your pop records nearly perfect, covered in an ‘80s-esque early-digital sheen but also complete with modern turns, and filled to the brim with jangly, bouncy, art-pop then you are gonna LOVE the new LP from Yumi Zouma. Truth Or Consequences may be their third release, but its the first one for Polyvinyl which makes it number one in our hearts! (Can you tell I’m writing this blurb the week of Valentine’s Day?) Whether it’s the bouncy (uh oh, a second use of bouncy) “Cool For A Second” or the jangly (AAGH! SECOND JANGLY) balladeering of “Truer Than Ever” there isn’t a bad place to start here. So start already!
