do it yourself DaIsY / Press

“From the eerie opening track "Something's Going on Here" to the raunchy "Hobo Tune" - which is the product of the three-stringed guitar - the record's riffs and lyrical style certainly have a blues vibe. But with Arnold's guitar tones drenched in maximum fuzz and raw vocals that would carry any classic rock tune, the songs are a mutation and marriage of multiple genres.”

“It is that vision of the world which makes for some entertainingly idiosyncratic rock. With 10 tracks in 25 unrelenting minutes, the duo moves from the Sub Pop sludge of The Carpenter to the pop melancholia (a la Frank Black) of Nothing is Left to the swampy Ry Cooder-like slide of Box of Light, the album’s construction hearkening back to the days of vinyl, where sides A and B built up tension before release and resetting again. Each song is distinct from its predecessor, yet startlingly cohesive, and short.”

“Overt rawness and untamed energy are the forces behind Do It Yourself DaIsY, and its debut album makes no mistake in harnessing them. It hinges on them. It so openly and unashamedly displays these traits that the band seems to be saying, “take it or leave it. We’re still going to do it this way.””
