Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2011-04-12 
Indie pop, jangly, a little angst under the happy sounding music. M+F vocals (often together in unison), full band & some electric piano. Tracks have lots of “extra” sounds, full. From NZ. Apparently all the members have solo careers as well. I like.

++1. Shambling pop, wistful
2. Jaunty, bouncy, summery. About drinking.
++3.Junkyard percussion, toy piano, 70’s synths gives this a funky party feel. Mid-tempo
++4.Downtempo, a little psych. NZ accent more noticeable in vocals. A little like Red Krayola/Mayo Thompson.
+5.Minor key, mid-fast, snarky. Catchy chorus gets it the thumbs up, though the verses are too musically blah & lyrically judgmental for me.
+6.Experimental/jam-perc quiet intro with a little piano, then builds up. Sad. Inspired by John Lennon solo, no doubt.
+7.Joyus robot. Percussion-heavy.
+8.Mid-down. M vocal leads. Insomnia.
+9.Solid mid-slow beat, slinky. F vocals lead.
10.Interesting instrumental interlude. Vocals are wordless. Happy, soundtracky.
+11.More straight-up, folk-pop.
++12.Mid-slow, slightly trippy pop
