The monumental third release and second full length album by Dwayne Sodahberk for Tigerbeat6 represents one of the label's most ambitious and fulfilling forays into modern pop music. Sodahberk could no longer repress his love for stringed instruments and, almost as a statement, traded his prized TR-909 drum machine for a 12-string electric guitar to make this album. Composed in semi-isolation on the outskirts of Stockholm, Sweden, Sodahberk gives Unfortunately a warm, analog glow through digital thumps, tweaks, and textures. His cutely aggressive pitters and patters contrast the emotionally charged noisy bits and adjoin intriguing melodies, gorgeous vocals, and solid structures. This blend of indie poptronics and post-rocking electro is a well balanced soundtrack for dawn to dusk. Beside the folky pop of the Caetano-Veloso-gone-wrong track "Bird," and the rather beautiful, vaguely '60s-flavored title track, there's room for electronic and noisy pieces like the dark "Christa," DSP-electro in "No Fun," and the stiff, desolate clavinet-funk of "If I Could Tell You" and "Almost Cliché." Pop tendencies and evidence of a tortured singer-songwriter are present on earlier Sodahberk releases, but melancholic songwriting and classic indie rock tunefulness has now fully invaded his electronica in a large scale though shards of noise, fractured soundscapes, contemplative ambience and heavy digital and analog processing still factor in. Most vocals are by Sodahberk, but Maria from Revlon 9, Liz Hysen of the Toronto band Picastro, and various other special guests make appearances.  * For fans of Hood, clouddead, Bedhead, and Sonic Youth as well as Warp, Bpitch Control or Morr Music  * Playing every show on the Tigerbeat6 Paws Across The World Tour 2003
