Early in the first track on Scattered Smothered Covered, the new album by Appetite, Teddy Briggs sings, “songs keep writing themselves” and the resulting collection of music seems to do exactly that. This early lyric is a testament to the sense of musical ease and fluency this 27-year-old Californian creates with this record. Originally conceived as a project to, as Briggs simply puts it, “try and make songs all by myself,” Appetite has, on this new disc, flourished, conjuring songs buoyed by a spirit that vibrates with the influences of downtempo electronica, hip-hop, Tropicalia, and the far-reaching sonics of Can, early Mercury Rev, and certain shades of Beck.
