It's Friday, so time for another Seaweed record. I am rapidly running out of these. I have 1 more on order, I hope it shows up before next Friday. Aside from Variants, the collection is almost complete. Despised, to me, is a bridge between the darker sound of Seaweed's first singles and the sound they would start perfecting on their album Weak.

While most of this EPs songs do still have moments where the band is reveling in a dark, sludgy vibe, the band is also starting to work in some more pop structures into their songs. To me, this band became incredible on their album Weak, and the songs they released prior to that are all just building to the moment where the band truly comes into their own.
