JEALOUSY's sophomore LP, Paid For It, is a hyper-tactile, hyper-sensual meditation on solipsism brought on by shattered idealism and sensory overload. Songwriter, lyricist, bassist, sound manipulator, and sole member MARK TREISE seems unable to stop from steeping himself in the lurid and the lascivious, in masochistic discomfort and gratuitous hedonism, to consider the value of self-destruction as a vessel for self-actualization, to approve knowingly of his own defeat in order to transcend its redundancy.   Paid For It oscillates between a series of isolated conversations with oneself and the sublime, layered and spliced in alternating abstractions and cognizant declarations. At times, the exchanges reach uncomfortable levels of saturation, but frequently they settle in the psyche with surprising ease. These are songs that contain neat and tidy pop hooks like small glittering diamonds in fields of loops and keys. Other tracks feature the heavy hitting drum work from DON BOLLES (of legendary punk band GERMS), placing Mark Treise's bass playing in pounding beds of tension and brash driving chaos. Throughout, Jealousy's narration is unwaveringly calm, laying down graphic, forked tongue-twisters like common law. With its sonic combustion, hypnotic rhythms, and distant, powerful percussion, Paid For It is both a nod to dark-glam, post-industrial greats—Coil, Psychic TV, Love and Rockets, Chrome—and an evolution of their premise. This music represents the kind of discomfort that can be craved, and lyrically showcases the sort of outpouring that must be grating in order to be gratifying.
