Carly McClellan, as CARR, has just released one of the best EPs you’ll hear all year. I’m Just Bored is equal amounts brash and catchy. The seven songs hearken back vibes of Girl In Red or Avril Lavigne, not-so-subtlely wiggling their way into your brain as if their one goal is to erase any trace of other music in order to be the sole, dominant songs stuck in your head. If you’ve been waiting your whole life to sing along at the top of your lungs to a song about a guy with a tiny dick… well, this is the record for you.
