Product Description

Review

The duo's debut album packs sweeping violin melodies, classical guitar, dynamic chord changes and folk-style lyrics into a pop-rock cornucopia that overflows with an indulgently diverse range of melodies and styles. "The Ballad of Lickey and Diamond" is an epic classic rock tale that unfolds like a children's bedtime story. A few songs later, we get the driving, chord-mashing "Six for a Parlay, Twelve for a Teaser," a piece that would be at home on Broadway. Happy Birthday, Kyle is a feast. --Alibi. V 17 #1. Jan. 3rd-9th, 2008

An intriguing, eclectic sound all its own. Operatic vocals paired with alternative rock instrumentals set it apart from the norm. If you're looking for an album with more substance than what you generally hear on the radio, "Happy Birthday, Kyle" could be a refreshing change of pace. --The Miami Hurricane. Jan. 31st, 2008

An enjoyable mix of ballads and upbeat tracks with addictive lyrics… an intriguing sound that is refreshing and unique. In short, "Happy Birthday, Kyle" is delightful. --The Record, Harvard Law School. Feb. 28th, 2008

Catchy songs here!
William Stephens
They cover a wide spectrum of sounds and styles without degenerating into gratuitous eclecticism.
M. Perez
Witty- intelligent and a true blend of musical melodies.

Warning! Catchy songs here! You'll definitely find yourself humming a few of these numbers. These two singer-songwriter guys on guitar (along with a stellar backup band) demonstrate their proficiency in a wide range of fun styles with both somber and humorous lyrics -- a la Barenaked Ladies or They Might Be Giants.

If, like me, you like unique songs that set a band apart from others, first check out Pharaoh and Six for a Parlay. Marlee and She's Mine will have you dancing, and Tuesday Evening & Kyle have a drive that pulls you in. Soon you'll be shouting "Happy Birthday," too.

This is a brilliant album in every respect. Quite a variety of musical styles for one disc...daring in my opinion, but it works! The songs are catchy and hummable without being cliche."Lickey" is an epic. "Six for a Parlay" is raucous, funny, and smart. "Amanda"...simple but so poignant! "Katie"--an unexpected trip into "Hee-Haw" territory, but don't let that scare you, it's a great song! Really, "Happy Birthday" is a total musical banquet. Not a dud in the set. Congratulations, guys, and be prepared to give us more!

These guys have made an incredibly enjoyable album. They cover a wide spectrum of sounds and styles without degenerating into gratuitous eclecticism. Whether they are mixing humor with sincerity, or pop hooks with interesting arrangements, they hit the mark. And the vocals are pretty much unequalled by anyone making popular music these days. It all adds up to an album that sounds interesting, feels right, and keeps getting better with each listen.

Fans of Rufus Wainwright and Ben Folds will totally dig this album that hearkens back to 80s indie rock when REM, They Might Be Giants, and the Violent Femmes were writing tuneful songs that really rocked and with lyrics that you actually followed along with in the liner notes so you didn't miss a syllable. It is such a relief that this kind of music is being recorded again. Thank you!!!

This album was a nice surprise. A selection of really eclectic tracks--some dark, some really funny (not unlike Barenaked Ladies or Phish). These guys have some serious vocal chops, and the harmonies are tight all throughout. I highly recommend this for anyone who likes pop, rock, accoustic, electric, folksy, or even theatrical music (Meatloaf, anyone?).

The Local Tourists created an album filled with fine music. I find myself humming the catchy tunes...and there is such variety! The lyrics evoke many emotions - and actually bring forth laughter at times. The harmonizing and lead singing is great...and the music is very polished. This album has a little something for everyone. I highly recommend it!

These guys run the gamut as far as style and spectrum on this album. The sounds range from Barenaked Ladies to bluegrass (in a good way)...and almost everything in between. This is a must have for any true fan of music. Buy it, press play and enjoy. Hopefully we will hear more from these guys soon!

There is something for everyone here - and you will most certainly play several tracks over and over. Humor and wit paired with insighful lyrics make this something that we can all share and enjoy. "I wrestled with your brother" is one of many of my favorite lyrics.
Enjoy and tell a friend!
