For the first song on this Mattress album, I can hear vocals coming out in a somewhat strange way that makes me think of something between Xiu Xiu and Illegal Wiretaps. But as the album progresses, the hints of “A Secret I Can’t Decode” shift over to what I believe to be a modern version of The Doors.
I just imagine The Doors getting together, forming a band and putting out music in the 21st century and it sounding almost exactly like this. That’s not at all a jab- because I love The Doors and think that they’d have a sort of updated style if formed now and not all those years ago. So this is just kind of how that updated sound might present itself and I’m digging it.
