"There's 'lo-fi' and there's this: aptly titled, The Doldrums is permeating with thrice-dubbed-over+thrown-underwater VHS befuddlement, siphoning early psychedelia and bedroom pop through a deliberately smudged lens. Ariel's homespun solo-specter-scribbles and prolific mouth-fx undoubtedly make for a warm-n-innovative aura, but it's also bumbling and disheveled to the point of utter irritation -- especially as an hour-plus endeavor. Xtra-especially when there was clearly potential being held captive in this closet of incoherent muck, something that would be further realized some years down the road when he embraced clarity and the musical companionship of other humans. But 'til then, cast your ears towards "Among Dreams" and "For Kate I Wait"; which double as this album's back-to-back saving grace legitimacies and circa-2007 skateboarder's interest-kindlers."rWhen the modern era hears shitty recorded music but embareses XXXsquiddad the Fuck????rDoldrums is a classic fam
