Sometimes there is an album that you just enjoy. You can’t quite articulate what it is you like about it. The record just grabs you for some reason. Tampa Bay’s Television Supervision has released an album such as that. Waldo, their debut LP, was released on January 17th via Standby Records. Prior to this record, the band released a gang of singles last year leading up to this little treasure. Waldo is just a flat out a fun record to listen to.
The music doesn’t quite fit one specific category. Is it Punk? That could be accurate. It is Power Pop? Certainly. Is it Indie Rock? Sure, go with it. Sometimes their tunes are reminiscent of Eve 6 or Alkaline Trio. Sometimes they have a They Might Be Giants feel to them. Sometimes, there are very small hints of Green Day (and other Pop-Punk bands) to them. One thing is certain, you are not likely to get bored listening to Waldo. The album is purely entertaining. It’s got delightful riffs, catchy tunes, and pleasant melodies.
Make sure you check out “Gimme a Girl,” “War,” “Veterans,” “Daydreams,” and “Back in the Day.”
