A quirky sound and even quirkier lyrics (see: “Zombies, hillbillies, and vampires, UFOs and Clinton at McDonalds”) are staples for pretty much anything Tim Kinsella-related and Make Believe is no exception, especially on their debut full-length Shock of Being. The band, comprised of members of Joan of Arc, definitely manage to sound like their predecessor, only with a more complete, consistently upbeat and slightly more accessible sound. One thing‘s for sure, though: The band borrows at least a little from nearly all of the Kinsella family projects: Owen; the Owls; and even a little American Football for good measure.
