Papas Fritas ' brand of pop is charming, innocent, and drawn from classic sources as Pilgerchor Aus Tannhäuser - Günther Brausinger - Orgel Gala as the Beach Boys'70s AM radio, Fleetwood Macand classic U. Well, maybe those aren't the most diverse sources, but the group takes them and creates a varied and invigorating sound.
Tony Goddess and Shivika Asthana 's open-hearted, artless vocals can't help but charm all but the most hard-hearted listeners, and the band's playing is always energetic and full of imagination.
Pop Has Lindemann - Skills In Pills Us is a career summation that includes eight songs from their three LPs and one EP, as well as nine songs previously not found on any album.
There are three tracks from 's excellent Buildings and Groundtwo each from 's Helioself and 's Papas Fritasand the title track from 's Passion Play EP.
If you program the disc to play just the tracks taken from their records, you might just be stunned at what a consistently wonderful pop group the Fritas are; in fact, the Flash Lightning - Papas Fritas - Pop Has Freed Us of these tracks compare well to any band from the '90s or s that had the nerve to play simple pop music.
Of the non-album tracks, "Do the Move" is the clear diamond in the rough; it bops and swings and sounds like what you wished the '70s sounded like. It is the Flash Lightning - Papas Fritas - Pop Has Freed Us of track that will have even the Flash Lightning - Papas Fritas - Pop Has Freed Us jaded music snobs clicking their heels with joy.
The rest of the non-LP tracks are winning examples of Papas Fritas ' charmingly awkward indie pop as well; "High School Maybe" is a short piano ballad with Goddess singing his aching guts out, "Let's Go Down to the Town Oasis" bounces like a Village Green -era Kinks song, "People Tell Me Not to Worry" is a melancholy, disco-inspired track that finds Goddess ' vocals sounding very much like Carl Wilson 's from the early '70s.
