Ok, that heading was just stupid, this is not pot music. This is one of the best records to come out since " The Beach boys love you". It's sooo beautiful and even though you might say this is sixties music, it's a very modern record. It's so uplifting to hear these young people with such a genuine love and respect for music. If Burt Bacharach and Brian Wilson ever worked together, this is what may have come out. But if you haven't seen this band live, do so now. They are even better live!

The Albemarle Sound, be it body of water, quality of music or the latest album by the Ladybug Transistor, is a sound that seems at once familiar and yet strange. Why? Well, the Ladybug Transistor goes back to the late '60s to write in the baroque pop style that utilizes arrangements, rhythms and instrumentation that have vanished from the pop music scene, things taken from classical music and even early marching band music (well, that's what I get out of it). In a time when the off-beat is in every single song, when something "slightly funky" has become the boring norm, the Transistor have gone back to that short time in the '60s when songs were really crafted and put together, not just jammed out and recorded for posterity. It may make for an unsettling experience at first, because it certainly doesn't sound like a lot of contemporary popmusic...but it'll be well worth it. Horns ain't for ska and swing and funk anymore (again). There's nothing wrong with going back and picking up on a great thread that stopped prematurely, and the Ladybug Transistor are one of the great bands doing just that with well-orchestrated pop/soft-rock with a touch of pretty psych.

The Albermarle Sound is just another pit stop of sound for the Ladybugs. Although, i think this round is not so moog-ish, and more classical sounding than say Beverly Atonale. It is a very dreamy album, the songs are so silly, but poetic. They do not try to come up with the most catchy tunes, they would rather build a song and show how beautifully it works together. I have great faith in the Ladybug Transistor, i feel that their music is inspired and original, idiosyncratic and universal....so get that loan and hear the Albermarle Sound.

This is one of the best albums i've heard in months. The Albemarle Sound features lush arrangements and beatles-influenced hooks; but there's also a subtle quirkiness that makes every song memorable. I really can't say enough about this record: the recording, performance and songwriting are all very well thought out - but not in an annoying "muso" sort of way. It references the past without sounding derivative and it utilizes *ridiculous* lyrical themes without making me cringe. I don't know how they did it. Every motarded guitar tone, silly piano fill, and seemingly unnecessary overdub makes me marvel at what a wonderful song i am listening to. Bravo. The first time i heard "Meadowport Arch" i giggled for 20 minutes. Tempo: March Slow. . . .

This album is a definite step up from their previous releasees, in terms of production and song-crafting. There are some gems of songs on this album, but there are also some less than stellar efforts. "The Great British Spring" reminds me of being in a park in London on a sunny day. The instrumentation gives a 60's retro feel to the songs, with pianos, guitars, horns, and drums. "Like a Summer Rain" and "Oceans in the Hall" are also great. However, "Today Knows" is a slow ballad which may drone on too long for some, and "The Swimmer" doesn't seem to match up with the quality of the other songs on this album. As a whole, the album works pretty well, and is one of my favorites.
