Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Anyone who's ever prepared a bubbly drink for a patio party while listening to Esquivel (or one of the endless series of Ultra Lounge comps from the mid-'90s) will know precisely where Tipsy's coming from. This playful modern group uses all the sonic cues of classic lounge and exotica music--popping-popcorn rhythms, string arrangements set on "tickle," tiki-surf guitars, and interjections of "Zow!" that sound as if they were sung by people in well-tailored suits. But Tipsy are keenly aware that this music's kitsch factor went out of hipster fashion about five years ago--the same time that their great debut, "Trip Tease," got lost in the ironic-lounge avalanche. So here they move beyond the (squeeze) cheese factor and craft infectiously upbeat songs that stand just fine on their own, from the sunnily propulsive "Papaya Highway" to the spy-themed "Swallowtail." And in a nod to today's electronica mayhem makers and yesterday's psychedelic popsters, they insert disorienting sound effects at every other turn. (See the blender-collaged "Hey!") Forget the retro-revival factor; Uh-Oh is a perkily distracting good time in any era. --Lisa Gidley

5.0 out of 5 stars Tipsy improves on perfection! February 6, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Tipsy's first release, "Trip Tease", revitalized my interest in the world of music. Through them I discovered somewhat similar bands such as Lemon Jelly, though no one quite came close to Tipsy's mix of electronica, eclectica, and lounge. With their second album, they seem to have grown up a bit. But fear not, this is still the same fun-loving music presented on "Trip Tease".
Musically, I find this album to be a little darker than the first one. It is still great music to clean house by, but at the same time if it is playing and you are doing nothing else, it can start making you think before you realize it. Rather than the bubble-like gems of the first album, these songs are more like uncut opals--attractive any way you look at them, but truly sparkling under close scrutiny over time. "Fur Teacup", for example, is on the surface a typical Tipsy composition, fun and engaging. But upon closer listening it shows the influences of many types of music, such as using Middle Eastern flutes, and suddenly you realize you're actually listening to a very profound piece.
"Uh-Oh" is not so much an improvement on the first album as it is simply an evolution of that sound. The first CD makes a great pool-party CD, but what "Uh-Oh" accomplishes is a little more tricky: it is not only a great party album, but one that can make you have the profoundest revelations if you listen to it in the dark, alone. Bravo Tipsy!

3.0 out of 5 stars like a flat gin and tonic March 16, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I extolled the virtues of Tipsy's first CD to anyone and everyone who would listen. Being a fan of Martin Denny and Les Baxter, Tipsy's take on exotica and lounge music was refreshingly new yet somehow familiar at the same time.
Five years have gone by and I waited with bated breath for their second release and here it is. It's as if I've waited five hours for the bartender to bring me another drink and I end up getting a flat gin and tonic without the twist.
Granted, this by far is still a good CD and I've only listened to my copy a few times so far, so I may be writing a new review in the future. However, at the moment, Uh-Oh falls short of Trip-Tease. It fails to give me goosebumps like Trip-Tease. The songs seemed contrived and lack the fluidity and spontaneity of their first effort.
With eighteen tracks averaging two and half minutes each, it's hard to get into a song. Some tracks leave you wishing they were longer while other tracks are over before they even begin.
Standout tracks: moisture seekers, wig out, hey!
Buy this if you're a fan of Tipsy or lounge music. If you're new to Tipsy then check out Trip-Tease first. Don't get me wrong though, I still love these guys. I only hope it doesn't take another five years for their next release and hopely it'll be more refined than this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loopy, whoopee-making, ear-tickling sound October 27, 2001
By Galitt
Format:Audio CD
I like everything that is a little different. I'm tired of all the usual music and sounds.
Especially when it comes to lounge music and trip hop. This scene is taking itself much too seriously lately....
The Tipsy due (Dave Gardner and Tim Digullia) takes it self lightly with a blink of humor (actually not a BLINK - it is simply insane stuff). More likely to think they were hardly tripping when recording this album... (Typically to San Francisco-based groups?...)
You can't put it in a specific style I'm familiar with - it's a mix of trip hop, groove jazz, a bit of French sounds, electronic pop, beats that were put together in no particular order..... Everything that makes your ears feels good and your face twist into a stupid smile...
I like "Reverse Cowgirl" funny sound (they actually play it backwards!!!), the ticklish guitar track on "Hard Petting."
"Bunny Kick" is actually sounds like Latin elevator music...
Pay attention to the smoker's hack in "Moisture Seekers"... absolutely crazy...
Make yourself a nice light cocktail, sit on your sofa, stair at your walls and listen! your gonna enjoy it!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy Fun Goodtime Sounds June 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
An excellent follow-up to Trip Tease, and very similiar...Tipsy could release hundreds of hours of music just like this and it would continue to entertain from start to finish. One reviewer stated that one shortcoming was the brevity of the tracks, and that's a valid point - you really do wish the tune would just keep on going, although you can kinda sit back, relax and listen to the entire disc as if it were one continuous tune (albeit with the occasional break). Overall, lots of fun - I hope they don't wait years to release aother disc!

5.0 out of 5 stars Five years later and still tripped out March 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Tipsy's first album Triptease (1996) is a classic hybrid of trip hop and exotica. It is so convincing in its appropriation of Martin Dennyisms, yet irreverent enough to avoid sounding like a straight homage. The San Francisco duo's latest offering (and only its second full length) is a worthy sequel. It's stylistically similar to Triptease, yet doesn't come off as a retread. Let's hope Tipsy doesn't wait another five years to release a third album. To read more about Tipsy and other cool sounds, go to (website)

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the Lounge on a Forbidden Planet! February 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the quirkiest CD's I have ever purchased. It is difficult to describe the sound exactly but if a combo of Lounge/Bad European 60's movies/Electronica/Go-Go is your bag, then this is for you.
Some exceptional tracks are:
"Reverse Cowgirl" which sounds like Beck meets Cibo Matto meets Hank Williams meets the Jetsons...figure that one out?
"Hard Petting" which is right out of a late 60's Euro-trash movie or maybe one of those goofy "Our Man Flynt" movies...kinda kitsch spy and Italian/French movie where they are driving around in a convertible down on the coast..you know what I mean, the slide whistle really adds a powerful kick.
"Papaya Freeway" is like Martin Denny on a far out trip, if you can imagine that one, like tropics meet forbidden planet.
"Sweet Cinnamon Punch" reminds me of some off the wall 60's movie where you are prety sure something naughty is going on but all the bizzarre swooping camera angles make it a bit unlcear, on the other hand I can see Barbarella floating around to this as well.
Overall, I really give this 4 1/2 stars, it is spectacular background music for your oh so hip cocktail party!

Tipsy suits it, seeing it reminds me of the bachelor pad 1960's music, compilations I see(and purchase) sometimes. This however is more updated and *out there*
