Reseña de álbum

Like Elliott Smith filtered through the moodier, cinematic portions of Radiohead's OK Computer, Chicago's Kevin Tihista's Red Terror offer up a lo-fi slice of indie pop with some surprisingly big ideas. Opening with an instrumental that sounds like a circus version of Angelo Badalamenti's Inside the Actor's Studio theme, it segues into a spinning filmstrip projector, cementing the songwriter's obvious love for theatrical melodrama.
