Automatic Thought – Thriftys

Album: Automatic Thought

Artist: Thriftys

Genre: #Alternative

Label: Self-Released

Non-Airable Tracks: NONE


A debut album from Oakland, Chase Eiseman, presents an “oldies but goodies” kind of songs that college students in the 80-90’s would jam out to. “Your Room” sounds like something that is heard from an indie film whereas “Fall Hard” and “Leave Here Unknown” are some of the slower tracks of the album that would be played out in a dorm with few close friends. “Losing Ground” sounds like a couple of students who came together through mutual interest of music to jam out on old instruments in their dad’s garage. “I’m Not Worthy” is a pretty upbeat song contrary to what the lyrics consist of and “Something Real” is a very mellow, slow song that could work as background music. Overall, I really enjoyed listening to this album! I already queued a couple of songs to listen to while working on homework and to also play on my show!

Sounds Like: Brandon Flowers, Kings of Leon

Recommended Tracks: 

  1. Track 4: “Break” – a short, gentle song (1:01)

  2. Track 5: “Don’t Let Em Bring You Down” – lyrics are relatable, plus fun and mellow to dance to!

  3. Track 9: “Parsley” – happy, guitar strumming to listen to on a fall afternoon
