MadLove - White with Foam (2009)

MadLove are by far the most accessible of Trevor Dunn's numerous bands (Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, and Tomahawk, to name a few.) White with Foam, the band's only record to date, consists of haunted, guitar-driven alt rock that's somewhat akin to Sadness Is a Butterfly-era Blonde Redhead, but more jagged, and with just a touch of the twisted lounge music that Mr. Bungle did oh-so well. Takes a while to sink in, but once it does, well... um, you, pretty much, you know... like it. Like, a lot.

Track listing:
1. Rats with Wings
2. Thread
3. Absence & Noise
4. Dirty
5. In Love (In Theory)
6. As Sad As It Was Beautiful
7. Broke
8. Left with Nothing
9. Knowing
10. The Mute Number

More real than life is
