Wimps are at it again with City Lights, another slacker punk moshterpiece ready for the internet to gobble up. Lead singer and composer Rachel Ratner offers stark and playful wordage melding minimalist hooky riffage to cover such prescient topics as the rise of ubiquitous ai (Mind Reader); loneliness, growing inequality, and the loss of community and self (City Lights); a yearning for a return to a feral past (Animal); pollution and climate terrorism (Lake Washington), creating life (Mom) and promising a maybe undeliverable hope to that life during an unceasing pandemic (Morning), among other daily mundanity. Dave Ramm is the drummer and Matt NYCe plays bass. Indeed, wimps' City Lights may well stand as an artifact of humanity in a time of increasingly glossed and flawed expression. An imperfect, live, energetic, human statement made by 3 imperfect, mostly alive, yet rapidly deteriorating early 40s bit players of various Seattle who's and what's of a time long ago and soon to be forgotten. City Lights is a collection of solid classic wimps bops from stop to finish.
