Ryland Bouchard's solo project is a defiant whisper in the ear of non-creative conventionalist pop music. As with his songs written under the name The Robot Ate Me, Bouchard proves he's not a slave to the standard predictability of his genre. His stripped-down, intimate pop songs with their maddeningly addictive melodies and quirky instrumentation have a strange, springy skepticism in them, a kind of wtf-irony that makes you, the listener, somehow relate on a mysterious level. Do yourself a favor and go buy Good World by The Robot Ate Me and then lock yourself in your room and listen to this performance by Ryland Bouchard.
Recorded by: Lucas Segall & Adam Clark
