The Perfectly Violent Dream with Becca Ayers – SPAZCANDY [DELUXE EDITION] is available exclusively right here! You are welcome to buy the first edition of the album for more money on iTunes, by clicking on the swelling iTunes swirl icon on the right. But you pay more money that way, you get less music, and we get less money. So, I really don’t see the point.
“One listen and your mind is wiped clean with a sweet, gooey, pop/ acid, confection! A full album of guilty pleasure songs! “
-Vinnie Zummo (Musician, Swinging Guitar Sounds Of Young America, Vol. 1,2,3/Joe Jackson Band)
“The pop artists behind SPAZCANDY are clearly engaged in a hot, sweaty love affair with pop music. The clearest evidence of this is the fact that they don’t just pay homage to one particular pop sound – they pay homage to, well… all of them. And yet they somehow also manage to sound completely original. It’s like some kind of acid-tinged black magic.”
-David Lee White, (Author, Fantomas In America)
“SPAZCANDY rocks. I’ve been a fan of Becca Ayers for several years, and this collaboration with Bradley Dean Whyte does not disappoint. Their lyrics are offbeat and messy like life, with a mash-up of innocence and worldliness, hope and cynicism. The beats are catchy and hummable. The sound emanates a pure joy and love of music, with melodies and harmonies that invite the listener to join in on that love fest. I guess that’s what makes SPAZCANDY such a satisfying listen. Ayers and Whyte are playing WITH you, not AT you. You are transported to their apartment. You are lying on the worn IKEA rug nursing a warm beer, getting a fossilized piece of pretzel stuck to your elbow, because, let’s face it, they’re not the best housekeepers in town.”
-David Caudle, Playwright
