Amateur Best - 'Be Happy'

Album Info

  • Release Date: February 13, 2012
  • Label: Double Demin
Amateur Best is the nom de plume of Londoner Joe Flory, who you’ll half-remember as the guy behind synth-pop project Primary1. His new speciality is extravagantly sad blubtronica, lightened with touches of Phoenix-esque soft rock. It’s pleasant, in an ambient, Pitchfork-y kind of way, and lines such as “[i]If it never gets better then what do I do?[/i]” will have a certain kind of hipster weeping all over his Technics.
