Review by BrufordFreak

4 stars A Crossover band that sounds like a cross between SANGUINE HUM, CHEER-ACCIDENT, THE CRUSADERS, STEELY DAN, TAME IMPALA, THE BEATLES, HARRY NILSSON, BEACH BOYS, and JANE'S ADDICTION. You may even hear some 10CC/GODLEY & CREME in here.

1. "Andromeda" (4:06) JOHN LENNON and HARRY NILSSON both come to mind as I listen to this sophisticated/quirky pop song. Nice classic 1970s wind up and spit out in the final minute. (8.75/10)

2. "Automatic Air" (4:12) a beautiful, almost floating listening experience. (9.5/10)

3. "Problem Addict" (5:03) another gorgeous song that reminds me of SANGUINE HUM only far more engaging and enjoyable. There's a little Tame Impala here, as well. (9.5/10)

4. "Several Bullets in My Head" (4:16) an upbeat instrumental sounding as if it came from some pop-jazz artist of the 1970s like Hubert Laws, The Crusaders/Joe Sample, or Steely Dan. I LOVE me some Fender Rhodes! (9/10)

5. "Freaks" (2:16) THE BEATLES/HARRY NILSSON and CHEER-ACCIDENT. (4.25/5)

6. "Mr. G" (3:25) a pure STEELY DAN opening. Turns more modern cheer-pop before going jazz pop at 1:40. (8.75/10)

7. "Deleted Scenes" (4:35) again a jazzed up SANGUINE HUM or CHEER-ACCIDENT comes to mind as I listen to funked up STEELY DAN-like songs these. (8.75/10)

8. "Airplane" (3:57) orientalized Ry Cooder-like acoustic sound palette backs Joel's confident lounge singing performance. At 2:00 things move into psychedelic pop realm reminding me of Robert James' WEST INDIAN GIRL or JANE'S ADDICTION/PORNO FOR PYROS. Interesting and beautiful but feels incomplete--like a snapshot: it leaves me wanting to know more. (8.75/10)

9. "The End and the Beginning" (9:06) dynamic and melodic, even cinematic, instrumental. Love the drumming and the DD Horns. Great theme/riffs after the slow down in the seventh minute. (18.75/20)

Total Length: 40:58

While lead vocalist Joel Robinow has a very pleasant, engaging voice (much more so than the lead vocalist of the band I most often compare them to, SANGUINE HUM's Joff Winks), and bass player Eli Eckert is often grabbing my attention, drummer Raj Ojha is for me the star of the show: he is quite the clever chameleon with this styles and techniques. Props to Joel for his keyboard mastery, as well.

A-/five stars; a minor masterpiece of crossover jazzy-pop music. I beg to wonder if every prog lover would enjoy adding this to their music collection, but I highly recommend that you check them out. On Bandcamp!

Thanks to rdtprog for the artist addition.
