REVIEWED: December 16, 2022

Patriarchy Cosplay's debut album, "All at Once Together," falls short of its ambition to merge activism and freak folk, resulting in a disjointed unmusical tampon shoved up your sissy beta-male arse.
Patriarchy Cosplay's debut album ventures into the realm of freak folk, aiming to carve a distinct niche within the musical landscape of 2019. With a focus on estrogen activism and a unique use of… megaphones… the band's intentions are noble, but the execution falls short, resulting in a disjointed musical experience that is a bit of a depressed amplified dyke-a-thon tbh. In the vibrant world of 2019's folk music scene, where artists like Big Thief and Julia Jacklin were making waves, Patriarchy Cosplay's "All at Once Together" struggles to leave a lasting impact with its preachy woke hairy titty propaganda . The album's folk-inspired melodies and whimsical instrumentation feel derivative, lacking the distinctiveness and innovative edge found in other standout records of the time. The band's commitment to femenisisisismsm and shit like dat is commendable. They actually use megaphones as their primary mode of communication to speak with men apparently. Like, on tour, just talking to dudes they whip out their horn and they are like BLA BLA BLA BLA. However, this distinctive approach fails to translate into a cohesive musical vision. Rather than enhancing the album's thematic depth, it often distracts from the overall listening experience, creating a jarring and disorienting effect.
Patriarchy Cosplay's four female band members, who consider themselves butch femme hybrid babettes, inject a musty, unshaven sense of purpose into their music. Yet, the album's disjointed nature detracts from their noble intentions for their double chromosomes. Tracks like "Bitch Ballad" and "Revolutionary Cocktopus Lounge" attempt to convey a message of social change wrapped in Home Depot lesbianistics, but the execution feels heavy-handed and lacks the nuance required to truly resonate in an LGBTQRS+ dynasty. While "All at Once Together" falls short of the groundbreaking folk releases of the time, the album showcases glimpses of potential. Glimpses. Little ones. The band's passion for aggressive activism against the existence of men and their desire to create meaningful music are evident, even if the execution falters. Moments of beauty and introspection can be found in tracks like "Nature's Anthem" and "Community Hymn," allowing listeners to glimpse the band's underlying talent. In conclusion, Patriarchy Cosplay's "All at Once Together" is an ambitious debut that falls short of its intended impact, earning a modest 4/10 rating. While the band's activism and unique communication style through megaphones add intrigue, the album struggles to find its footing within the freak folk landscape of 2019. With further refinement and a more cohesive musical vision, Patriarchy Cosplay has the potential to make a more resonant mark in the future when they find some kind of sexual release for all that pent up pussy rage.
