Editorial Reviews

Emotion is kind of the thing that drives the psychedelic peppy pop created by the oft-effervescent Oberhofer. Like the brain child of Brian Wilson and Descartes, he s fixated on the idea of his philosophically minded, energetic melodic romps making people happy-mostly because it s all he can bear to think about. Referring to his music in total as a time capsule of exactly how I m feeling at a given moment , each song is a clear unrestrained look inside the Oberhofer vault. And, between Like Gold , a reflection on two magical weeks spent with a first love that inadvertently kicked off his current project, Away From U , an upbeat goodbye whose commercial sync garnered enough money to move out of his addict-filled apartment and the Gotta Go , the interpretation of bidding a woman adieu while also saying goodbye to your old process of getting work done, his heart s on his sleeve, on paper, and all over everything he creates.

The subject of this album is the break-up of that obsessive first, doomed love. The medium is the sounds that have stuck in your brain through the years--surfer, punk, orchestral, circus, lunatic asylum--crafted into a succession of wicked hooks and surprising layers. The result is unapologetically naive emotionally; joy-of-life meets pain-of-experience. The album on this level consists pretty much of the sincere confessions of Brad Oberhofer, who wrote most of the songs on the album when he was eighteen and nineteen. Musically, the result is more cunning--catchy tunes, pyrotechnic orchestration, sly musical commentary on the lyrics. You'll have several of the songs running through your brain after one listening, but will be back for the full feel-good experience.

The sound of this album is interesting to compare to the volcanic show and straightforward sound of Brad's eponymous live band, and to his earlier, self-released singles. This artist has the capacity to surprise, and will be interesting to watch in coming years.

This dude is young yet so talented.

Now there are moments you start to wonder, didn't I hear this sound in the last song? Possibly. Yet, I think that is what makes the CD work as if it could be a longer logical piece to enjoy.

The music is definitely indie which means you probably won't be listening to his songs on the radio. Yet, you get the texture of who this artist is. And I am glad he's staying true to himself. No sale out here. This is a CD that left me eager to hear more from this artist in the future.

this may not be the most original set of compositions you'll ever hear. The influences are obvious. But this is a sold pop record. there is nothing profound about it and it wont change your life. But its a lot of fun. Other reviewers have criticized its lack or originality. pitchfork slammed it. But I think its great. so what if it wont change my life. its infectious. it might be the best set of silly little love songs you'll hear this year.

I recently saw Oberhofer in concert for the first time (more on that later), Afterwards I immediately checked out this album, which is the debut album from the New York band.

"Time Capsules II" (10 tracks; 38 min.) kicks off with "HEART", which is very representative of the entire album: light and quirky but with that certain appeal in it that makes you want to hear more. As I was listening to the album, I knew that this reminded me of some other band, and finally the name came to me: Aqueduct, which was a favorite band of mine around the time of their 2005 "I Sold Gold" album (whatever became of them anyway after 2007?). "Landmine" is a boisterous romper. "Away From U" (no typos!), continues the upbeat quirky songs. "oOoO" (try pronouncing that!) is an instrumental but for the repeat of the title of the song. "Cruising FDR" is a Beach Boys-like ode to cruising in your car, another highlight on the album. The 5+ min. "Haus" is by far the longest track on here, and equally good. The closing track "Homebro" is the only slower/pensive song on the album. In all, this is quite the album, although I have no idea why it's called "Time Capsules II", seemingly implying there is a Vol. I out there.

I saw the band in concert last month at the Bunbury music festival here in Cincinnati, where Brad Oberhofer and his band mates put on a very enjoyable set in the early evening on the second largest stage. They played most songs from this album. The band was fully energized and the crowd responded enthusiastically. If you have a chance to see them live, do not miss them! Meanwhile, "Time Capsules II" is definitely worth checking out.

I'm completely astonished to come here and find only 4 reviews for Time Capsules. This is a legitimately fun album - one you can play from track one and enjoy in it's entirety. Good for driving, late nights, and many of the songs are danceable in my opinion. Top songs: Landline, I Could go, Crusin' FDR, Haus.

Interesting album filled with catchy tunes. After seeing them live, I'm actually disappointed with the mixing on this album. His initial eps and live performances are wayyy more raw and I feel this was over mixed in so many ways. It's good for the songs present though I would just buy his earlier eps to give yourself a better listening experience. Seriously, shame on whoever mixed and buried the guitars on OoOoOOO
