With lines like, “You found me on a planet of 5 billion people/4,999,999 don’t matter?/Yeah, Oh baby, yeah” and “We’ve got nothing to lose/We’ve got nothing to prove/We might be dead before this song is through,” Mixel Pixel’s dork-pop goes Yeats. Rob Corradetti and Kaia Wong perform a stoned, Sofa King blues under the aid of lethargic digital beats and busker guitar melodies. It’s all very cute. Mopey, new-wave synth lines make “Last Song” a charmer and there’s a gnarly, Iron Maiden-esque guitar solo that pops up in “Cats.” Inside the CD sleeve there’s a drawing of E.T. telling Alf, “What up, Alf?” Adorable.
