Like all albums I’ve discussed on this blog, Amateurs On Plastic is legally and freely available online. It’s a tribute to Teenbeat Records, which appears to be boutique record label for amateur songs recorded on cassette tapes, founded in 1985.
My favourite song on the album is ‘Buried Treasure’. It begins slow, builds to a climax, slow again, and then there’s another climax. Perfect for those who have recently achieved emotional closure, or remain in deep denial. ‘Safety In Numbers’ is another highlight.
If you’re looking for variety and sincerity, listen to Amateurs On Plastic.
