SIDE A Teen Boys Greatest Hits
Fully realized midi arrangements of the songs of Teen Boys, a band that played 1 show. When tendinitis prevented me from practicing the interwoven guitar riffs that are the basis of these songs, I decided it would be fun to flesh out my guitar tabs into midi compositions and dub some cassettes

A1. Want What I Can't Get
A2. Again
A3. It's Not Everything
A4. Do You Want Me
A5. Do Or Die

SIDE B bonus tracks
Two ambient pieces performed on bontempi reed organ and broken Autoharp followed by the tracks from Side A rendered at punk rock Chipmunks perform Einstein On The Beach pace

B1. Three Organs
B2. Sore Wrists Blues
B3. Après Midi (chipmunks mix)

Handmade cassettes available at June Records in Toronto for a fiver

If you buy it on bandcamp you also get the special extended digital-only bonus track "Three Organs (director's cut edition mix)," featuring 40 fevered minutes of warbly overtones and glacial harmonic movement!

"An aural Marxist analysis of 'Lo-Fi,' 'Retro,' and 'Weird' as commodities, 'Après Midi' troubles the fraught stylistic signposts of late capitalism, positioning exuberant, whimsical melodicism and the reiteration of unfashionable sounds against the Pitchforkian hegemony.... Inhabit[ing] liminal spaces of performative mimesis... Gray diffuses the contradictions endemic to the dialectic of musical authenticity through a Millennial lens..." - Judith Butler
