Karen Meat & the Players are led by Arin Eaton, a Nashville transplant who used to work for Music City’s Southern Girls Rock & Roll Camp and previously recorded wistful folk-pop under the alias Elizabeth Arynn. As Karen Meat, she’s blunter and more conversational, uncloaking a barstool drawl for no-nonsense observations that suggest a landlocked American cousin to ascendant Australian singer/songwriter Courtney Barnett. Karen Meat & the Computer, the project’s first full-fledged release —titled that way because Eaton originally planned to make the record solo on her computer — is a set of strategically off-kilter pop that celebrates both negative-body-image-and-all imperfection and the Des Moines scene Eaton now calls home.

Karen Meat & the Computer's tracks contain a disarming frankness and vulnerability throughout, even when the subject at hand is pizza and beer, as on the track of the same name. “I eat too much / I drink too much / I slur my words and I get absurd…You want me to be the girl of your dreams / But I’d rather barf all the shit I snarfed down earlier,“ Eaton sings, as the last syllable dissolves into a glitchy wash of beats.?

Pizza and beer: the recipe for not giving a fuck. An anthem for those who have given up on pleasing others. A staple of benign indulgence to lull yourself into blissful oblivion, to wake up and try again when you might give more of a fuck. At its best, the fuel for a warm and happy buzz between buds who don't give a fuck, together.

This song came about when I was delirious, singing in the car about myself, my thoughts, my feelings, my pizza, my beer. It’s become something greater than that. Whether it’s that you're fed up with a significant other or a job - or it’s simply that you love pizza and beer - this is a message that everyone can relate to in some sort of way. Who doesn’t love pizza and beer?!
