OPE!

The ranch dressing of music blogs by Brady Gerber.

DOLLHOUSE on Bandcamp.

Rating: 4 out of 4.

I have nothing smart to say about this DOLLHOUSE song (and EP) that makes me feel a whole lotta lotta. “Be Nice to Me (Part II)” feels like someone jumping through my laptop wearing jorts and yelling “YR LIFE SUCKZ NERDZ” and me politely nodding in severe agreement as we mosh in my bedroom. I don’t want to listen to anything else for the rest of my life.
