Kenny Vs. Thrust
Big Stir Records
This very good psychedelic pop album reminds me of Robyn Hitchcock at his best, with some differences.
As much as I like Hitchcock, a little whimsy goes a long way with me and I’ll put on Anton when I don’t want as much. I like that he’s a bit more grounded in reality, and songs like “Jingle Jangle” and “Mahjong Dijon” have a sweetness that makes the album a joy to listen to.
I don’t want to do the OK Boomer thing, but this album presents a type of music that really isn’t heard much anymore and should be. It’s that good, that fun, and that rewarding.
