FIDLAR Album Review: Too

FIDLAR once again wows the low-life wannabe-skaters with their new album, “Too”! This garage-rock punk band is based in Los Angeles, California, and posted their first songs online in 2009. The band’s name, FIDLAR, is an acronym for, ‘Forget It Dad, Life’s All Right.’ This sums up their carefree, semi trashy skater sound.
After the success of the their self-titled first album, the second one had a lot to live up to. “Too,” is similar to the first album, in fact would be hard to distinguish between the two. On the alleged, “sophomore slump” that so many artist suffer from, Zac Carper said, “The hardest thing is, you get lost in the question of what do people want from me? And, after a while, it was just like, you know what? I think we should just do what we want to do.”
FIDLAR seems to not care about anything, with topics including casual substance abuse and bumming around. The first track on the album shows this with “40oz on Repeat.” It’s a fun and fast song that any teenage garage band could imitate. Choice phrases like, “I’m that kind of special person that drinks too much/ ‘Cause nobody understands me,” and “ I don’t care at all, I’ll drink some alcohol,” aren’t poetry. It sounds like the band is making fun of itself a bit.
FIDLAR members haven’t outgrown their adolescence goofiness, which shows in, “West Coast.” This is one of the more pop sounding songs, and is definitely a song to dance to. “Skip school, I’m already failing/ Tell mom and dad that I’m bailing,” is a verse that singer, Zac Carper, shouts at you through the ear buds. If you choose to ignore that he’s 28, and has the same haircut as my dad, it’s a relatable and carefree jam! Both of these, plus another dance-type song called “Drone”, had already released as singles. “Why Generation” is another great song on the album.
Although they sing with aggression, none of these songs sound downright violent. They are the parking-lot loiterers of music; not hurting anyone, just getting up to shenanigans. Maybe a little self deprecating, like in the song, “Leave Me Alone,” where they say, “I’m a stupid/ So stupid/ And a hopeless/ Romantic/ I guess I’m damaged.” Cheer up FIDLAR! You may have not grown into a more mature sound, but the crowd you have attracted won’t mind. There will always be a tired teenager eager to thrash to “Too.”
