4.0 out of 5 stars Simply fluffy fun!, June 12, 2012
This review is from: POP ETC (Audio CD)
Pop Etc were previously named The Morning Benders and are a trio comprising Julian Harmon, Jon and Chris Chu. Once I found out that Brian "Danger Mouse" Burton was involved, my interest was piqued.

They write and perform very catchy Pop tunes with electronic flourishes and layered harmonies, reminiscent of Yeasayer, or even Burton's Broken Bells. Shimmery synths and ethereal vocals aplenty. Opening cut finds vocalist Chris Chu lamenting ""If I could, I would give it all back for just one more day with you" over softly bubbling synths. "Keep It For Your Own" is saccharine sweet indie pop with dreamy vocals flitting out from the rich soundscape. The down tempo "Live It Up" is more stripped with a pseudo Jazz feel, "Everything Is Gone" features a ghostly whistle, while "I Wanna Be Your Man" is set to glitches and bloops.

For ballads, we have the falsetto-sung "Why'd You Do It Honey", and the pretty Beatles-esque C-O-M-M-U-N-I-C-A-T-E. Closing is the stomping Dance Pop "Yoyo" which sounds like the perfect soundtrack to a summer party. Fluffy fun.
