Jack Dump (Alex Hood) - Fuzzy Ballet

"Fuzzy Ballet" is the newest caustic, scuzzy, lo-fi solo punk/noise offering from Alex Hood (of Zombi Jazz) as Jack Dump. Hood explores some new territory here, with the looped vocal chorale "Type 2 Diabetes" and the 80s synth pop sounding "Pacifisiting," but the bizarre jazz piano, perverse lyrics, off-kilter vocals, video-game-inspired synth lines, and ultra lo-fi drum machines from previous releases are here to stay.

Highlights include "Lloyd Blankfein," "It's Inevitable," "Fuck You Twice," "Dopamine Machine," and the ferocious, sea-sick cover of Carly Rae Jespen's "Call Me Maybe"
