Cibo Matto "Birthday Cake"

I remember thinking this record was super-cool when it came out in 1996. Cute and clever and grooving and hip.

A dozen years later, I kinda think I was acting like a hipster jerk. The phrase that popped to mind as I was listening to this, was “off-key caterwauling” which I believe Mr. Burns used to describe the Beatles.

It’s harmless, but it’s silly to pretend that this is really, really listenable, and more than just a novelty.

I hope to God that when I hit 50, I don’t look back at what I like today and say “Ugh, I had such ‘forty-something’ hipster taste back in 2009”
