Customer Review

VINE VOICEon March 21, 2012
This is enjoyable, upbeat, sunny electro-pop that somehow doesn't feel like straight ahead electro-pop. Yes, the beats are danceable, the hooks are sunny and electric, but the songwriting feels like it comes from a more confessional place, from a singer/songwriter sort of vibe, and that is pretty refreshing. Vocally, I am reminded a little of Vampire Weekend in the delivery and vocal tone, and some of the repeated snare drum rhythms remind me of South African/Soweto rhythms, especially in "All of Me". Not that this is in any way a "world music" sort of album, but it is rhythmically interesting. Hints of Technique era New Order influence can be found in the wall of background guitar/synth, and the rich production that still seems pleasantly rough instead of overproduced--lots of nice details, but not done to death. Overall, a really enjoyable album, and well worth a spin. 5 stars for how happy it makes me when I listen to it, for the catchy rhythms, and the great tunes. Check it out!
