Renaldo and the Loaf - Songs for Swinging Larvae


Album Title: Songs for Swinging Larvae
Artist: Renaldo and the Loaf
Release Year: 1981

Purchase Links: Amazon MP3 | Klanggalerie Physical | Klanggalerie Bandcamp

Behold! The album that (apparently) made Penn Jillette snap and finally become a fan of Ralph Records! This is the first official album put out by Renaldo and the Loaf and it's definitely a wacky and surreal one to start off with! Let's question the donut-like qualities of guavas and more in this installment of Finest Flowers Album Club!


Do you have a recommendation for the next Fine Flower we should discuss? Private message me the album info as well as your own introduction to the album and maybe it'll be the next one we talk about?!

Songs for Swinging Larvae is definitely an interesting one. It's definitely very weird and wacky, but there's something about it that sets it apart from The Residents and other Ralph weirdness. Overall, I still think I like Arabic Yodeling more than Larvae, but this album definitely has some great songs. I obviously have to mention "Is Guava a Donut?" in particular. That song speaks to my soul somehow. It is insanely well made, catchy, and somehow personal and weird all at the same time. I really dig it. It sounds like a fake conversation I'd come up with in my head.

This is definitely a great album. It transports you to this very surreal world, which means it isn't one that I can just listen to any day of the week, but when I do listen to it I really love it and find new things to appreciate every time.
