- Everyday I Said A Prayer For Kathy And Made A One Inch Square
"An Exhausted Fixer" by Wheat
The new Wheat album, Everyday I Said A Prayer For Kathy And Made A One Inch Square, plays like its title: It's tiresome and hackneyed, and it gets worse every time it's repeated. Pared back to a duo after an unhappy major-label sojourn on 2003's Per Second, Per Second, Per Second Every Second, singer-guitarist Scott Levesque and drummer Brendan Harney prove more lethal to Wheat's music than even the most misguided A&R guy, with indifferent performances and tuneless "experimental" passages wrecking Everyday I Said A Prayer's most promising melodies. If the idea was to shore up the band's indie roots, Wheat has succeeded in the worst possible way. The amateurish Everyday I Said A Prayer earns its obscurity.
