Rafter Roberts has been a producer for bands as far-flung as the Fiery Furnaces and Arab on Radar, so it's not a shock that his own music sounds like a compilation of the work of three or four bands (who sometimes seem to be playing all at once). Sex Death Cassette is Rafter's messiest, and poppiest, music yet; it plays like Roberts and crew threw an album of perfect pop songs on the ground, shattering it into bits that are just as catchy, and a lot more unpredictable. Though the album isn't quite as fatally erotic as advertised (somehow, Romantic Mortality Compact Disc just doesn't have the same ring to it), it does offer a fascinating push-pull between joyful songs that are sweeter than a lot of indie pop and spazzy songs that are more energetic than a lot of indie rock. "Love Time Now Please" pins down merry xylophones and guitars with heavily distorted basslines and beats; "Sleazy Sleepy"'s brass fanfares and sweet harmonies turn almost-nonsense like "you don't even need to know nobody at all" into an irresistible refrain. The ultra-noisy "Casualty of BOC" shows how good sticky-sweet melodies can sound with a thick coating of crunchy distortion and tape fuzz, and thanks to Roberts' artfully lo-fi production, the handclaps in "Cuddling Raccoons" can still be heard over cranked-up guitars and synth squeals. Like albums from other musical magpies such as Guided by Voices and the Microphones, on Sex Death Cassette Rafter works with a wide canvas of 19 songs. Roberts tries anything that comes to mind, from the wide-eyed "No-One Home Ever" to the sparkly, Beach Boys-inspired harmonies of "Breeze" to "Thunderclap," a piece of whispery pop that provides one of the album's few breathers. Rafter struggles to keep the momentum going on Sex Death Cassette's last few tracks, which feel a little more like typically "quirky" indie than what came before. Still, the album's collage rock is often dazzling, and never the same from moment to moment.

One of San Diego's music fixture Rafter Roberts' many projects — which include the indie pop duo Bunky, running one of the city's most popular indie recording studios, and producing and engineering albums for Castanets, the Fiery Furnaces, Arab on Radar, and more — Rafter's kaleidoscopic noise pop features Roberts and a revolving cast of friends. Growing up in a California commune, Roberts wasn't exposed to much pop culture or music except for what his new wave- and punk-loving older...
