Final Thoughts:

FIDLAR’s self titled album was friggin’ amazing. Here’s this new band singing about Cheap Beer and Cocaine and then they release a music video with Nick Offerman peeing on everything (fake penis and all). It was raw, weird, and it made you feel like you were on this trip with a bunch of crazy stoners. Then Too came out, and it was significantly watered down. If FIDLAR (album) was a bad trip, Too is a hissy fit, the lyricism takes a noticeable dive, but damn if it’s not still catchy as ever. FIDLAR’s Too wasn’t necessarily a misstep, but it went a little too accessible. I think this band will have a hard time finding itself upon its next release, do they want to be raw and unpredictable (please, please please) or do they want to be a band for high schoolers who are finding themselves? Only time will tell.
