I heart cheese, but I hate people. I am definitely uncertain about my feelings towards Cheese People. Listening to their self-titled debut album is almost like eating salt & vinegar potato chips – it is an acquired taste and you just don’t know what it is that draws you to it.
This Russian quartet does a fine job of creating unique sounds on their no-budget self-produced album. Funky and edgy barely describes the band. Just the track titles alone (Boombasters, O-Djaz…) will make you listen. They are loud, they are upbeat, and they want to be heard. The consistencies throughout the album are their catchy beats and crazy (literally) lyrics. I personally love “Wake Up” and think it’s the perfect song to be set as my alarm in the morning.
