COAST MODERN, “Puppy Llama”
Don’t ask me what a song called “Puppy Llama” is all about, because your guess is as good as mine. The musical basis though is alternative electro pop/rock from L.A.-based duo Coast Modern. “Puppy Llama” will really have you scratching your head from its beginning, but fortunately the song does not let up, keeping you locked in and filled with numerous infectious moments for its strange ride. The playful vocals sometimes remind me of Rivers Cuomo from Weezer, and the overall effect sometimes is like a Beck song flipped sideways with a crooked smile. Make of it what you will, but Coast Modern is on to something that will make more heads turn with “Puppy Llama”.
