10. P.O.S. – We Don’t Even Live Here

Lyrically, this is an album about little revolutions. The idea is that if you can’t abide living in a ****ed-up America, that you make scheme and plot and make your own rules. Make your own place to live. Kick down doors, reject notions of private property, lie. It’s a surprisingly upbeat album, given its fairly revolutionary politics. P.O.S.’ stellar solo albums have typically been full of punk rock drums and raw production. On this, his 4th album, things change a bit. There’s more of an electronic, European influence. It feels like a natural extension in some ways from 2011’s Doomtree crew album, No Kings. “**** Your Stuff,” the lead single, is as commercial a track as P.O.S. is likely to ever produce (so of course it’s very lyrically subversive). Stef raps his ass off on fast-paced songs like “Weird Friends” or “All of It” or “Bumper.” The track “How We Land” is my favorite; a beautiful number about overmedication, featuring guest vocals (and a guest rap verse!) from Justin Vernon of Bon Iver fame. Yes, Bon Iver rap exists. There aren’t a lot of highlights on this album, honestly. Stef’s last album, Never Better, was full of great song after great song. We Don’t Even Live Here is a more cohesive ALBUM, however. It’s an engaging album-length listen. It’s catchy, energetic, and doesn’t get old.
