Song A Day Stacked To the Rafters

Song A Day Stacked To the Rafters
Some artists positively sweat creativity and Rafter Roberts is one. The already prolific Californian and his girlfriend, photographer Lizeth Santos, dared themselves to finish an art project a day to increase their productivity. The fruits of their labours have been posted weekly on AsthmaticKitty.com since October 5 2007, with plans to extend the project through most of ’08. As gleefully eclectic as Rafter’s newly released full-length album Sex, Death, Cassette, but more messy and raw, songs like "Paper,” "Noise” and "Anthropomorphic” are testament to the method of their forced construction. By exploring his most immediate ideas, Rafter has taken his quirky melodies, dirty dance beats and jazzy horns beyond the pristine pop boundaries of a proper album, into new highs of creative efficiency.
