Aloof Edmonton innovator Sean Nicholas Savage certainly impresses with his twelfth studio release. Featuring collaborations with Calvin Love and Julian Bozeman, Yummycoma is a synth-laden, surf-reminiscent collection of subdued ballads that will make you feel like you’re a really cool teen living near a beach in the 80s.
Listening through, it remains clear that Savage isn’t down with conventional songwriting — Yummycoma pushes boundaries with masterfully poetic themes and unbridled vocal distortion. Play “So It Appears” when you’re feeling misunderstood.
