Aloha began with Tony Cavallario and Matthew Gengler in the summer of 1997 in Bowling Green, OH. One of the few bands to ever actually get a record deal based on a demo tape, the band has operated from a number of bases, doing their writing, rehearsing and living in Cleveland, Chicago, Washington D.C., Cincinnati, Rochester, Pittsburgh and Altoona, PA. Aloha is renowned for their intense, ... Read more in Amazon's Aloha Store

Editorial Reviews

Polyvinyl's most critically-acclaimed band, Aloha loves a little bit of everything (60s orchestral pop, prog rock, 20th century composers, iconic songwriters), but they don't dabble here and there, they meld it all to make their own noise, a singular and unmistakable one. Lifetimes of sound distilled into 3-6 minute bursts. Some Echoesis Aloha's fourth album.

Who would have ever though that prog-rock would achieve an early 21st century revival in the form of the decades biggest indie rock? I would never have guessed that the bones of such forgotten dinosaurs as Yes, Queensryche, Electric Light Orchestra, and Genesis would be uncovered by those trendy (and impeccably dressed) kids of The Decemberists, Sufjan Stevens, and The Arcade Fire. Well, add one more to that list. They may not have the major label or the recognition of said bands but they don't have a problem writing songs as good, if not better, than their populous counterparts.

Aloha hail from my home town of Cleveland and I did have the pleasure of seeing them play live once. At the time their music struck me as confused with a few more ingredients than needed. I'll admit that I had read somewhere they were a post-hardcore band, which isn't the case. Pre- Some Echoes Aloha experimented heavily with improvisation which probably explained my reaction. Some Echoes is their shot at a more pop oriented album. This doesn't mean that every song is verse chorus verse, but it does sound more accessible than they did a year ago in Cleveland.

There are two things that make Aloha better than prog-rock. The first is the fact that they don't profit in bombast. While a band like Yes seemed determined to use every damn track a studio could provide, each instrument on Some Echoes moves the song forward and seems necessary to the structure of the song. The masturbatory instrumentals are non-existent. For example, if this happened to be the mid-seventies, the arpeggios that appear at the end of "Brace Your Face" would signal the beginning of a ten minute instrumental representing the fairies bringing in the morning dew.

Aloha is one of my favorite new bands- Most of what I've been listening to lately is their third release, Sugar. I haven't heard this whole new album yet, because I'm seeing them tonight and I'm going to buy it there, but i've heard clips of all the tracks and a few full ones- and let me tell you, this release doesn't disappoint! I was at first turned off by the new way they decided to record the vocals, but now that I'm past that I must say this is probably going to be better than their last release! seems they've taken on a slight more "indie" feel, and while that's not my thing they make up for it by getting a little more into their more progressive and jazz-influenced roots. and while nothing can top The Great Communicators (wow!), That's Your Fire or Sugar, this album is probably as close as they could've come without their old drummer. And the addition of organ was a great idea! I'm looking forward to really getting to know these songs, im sure this will be in my regular rotation in no time!
