Generic Treasure is meticulously detailed, eleven tracks of acoustic guitar marked by Joe’s distinct monotone drawl and lyrics, unraveling boredom and inner-confusions, delivered in sing-song melodies and rhymes that maintain a sense of humor about it all. “History” is a smart but disillusioned criticism of modern life: “People were writing their own history / nothing was left to mystery / everything was planned / it all felt like a scam.” “Life” is balanced by alternating verses with Marissa Paternoster on vocals. “I’m not proud of the things I’ve done in my life / But that’s alright, ‘cause I will die.” The sentiment can seem either depressing as hell or rather inspired. Marissa produced this record and it includes a re-imagined version of “Just Pray” from For Science’s Way Outta Control.
