CakeHole – ‘Stab You’ (mp3)

Listen to

Before I get into this little writeup, I just wanted to say we might be a little scant on the postings this week. It’s busy days ahead, but please bear with us and we’ll be back to the usual programming in no time. Hell, we might just throw up a bunch of YouTube vids to pass the time.

It’s one of those songs that you hope is meant to be ironically bad. CakeHole is a bit of a mystery band: the vocals are immediately obvious as Jess Origliasso from The Veronicas, but the other characters I’m not too sure of. I think one of them may be Azaria, singer of The Follow (and Jess’ new beau) but the other dude… no idea. Any clues readers?

The aesthetic is amateur electronic J-pop, but with lyrics like “I will stab you here / don’t ask me why / I will stab you with / Stab you with my wife” I can only assume – and hope – that CakeHole are supposed to be tongue-in-cheek bad. Honestly, who would write crap like that and mean it to be serious? The problem, though, seems to lie in Jess’ incongruent vocal melody that doesn’t lock in with the music. This ain’t no Veronicas pop tune, honey.

In the end, it’s fairly vacuous but innocuous electronic dribblings that won’t amount to much. But somehow it’s irritatingly memorable.
