Since their debut album in 2014, Cherry Glazerr hit the music scene with a punch (in a good way). Clementine Creevy started the band in high school and as she grew up so did her sound. In their new album “Stuffed & Ready” we can see a massive shift in their music as it takes on a more deeply personal tone. “Stuffed and Ready” explores Clementine’s emotional vulnerability in a mere 10 songs. We first start off the journey at the song “Ohio” with a striking lyric “I wish myself the best, but I’m broken” complemented by heavy guitar riffs. It delivers a bold intro song but I’m soon to be unimpressed, as the song “Daddi” comes on. “Daddi” fails to capture my interest as I feel it’s a little generic but I’m stricken by the next song “Wasted Nun.”
You can hear a familiar sound to their other albums in “Wasted Nun” but this time it’s more polished. The lyric “I’m an unproductive sin” is well pretty damn relatable. “Self Explained” gives the freshest and pop-ish sound compared to the rest of the album but still delivers Clementine’s emotional reprise. Stupid Fish” is good but delivers too similar of a sound to the rest of the album to catch my interest. The song that really blows me away is “Distressor”. “Distressor” hits with amazing guitar riffs as a hybrid of all of the sounds given to us in previous songs. In this song it’s apparent how much Cherry Glazerr has grown and Clementine as well as a lyricist. It’s the perfect victory lap for the album. Overall, I personally dub this a very solid album. Seeing them grow from a feminist powerhouse to a feminist powerhouse with a polished sound has been an amazing journey.
