Album Review
Kyle Vandenberg
Reviewed 2011-05-21 
Cloyingly sweet synth-pop, with crooning, barely intelligible female vocals, sometimes with darker/rawer (rawr?) instrumentals. Pretty similar to Au Revoir Simone, but less straightforward with the instrumentals. FCC clean. Try 1, 5, 7, 8
1) Very light, bubbly, and frenetic, until the ending puts a darker spin on the melody. 2) A flurry of sound, with drums, heaps of chimes, and swiftly strummed guitar. 3) Calm vocals, echo-y and chaotic instrumentals. 4) Glockenspiel with foreboding guitars. I can’t fit a mood to this one. 5) Instrumentals take a backseat to vocals in the first and third parts; trombone solo in the middle. Mysterious and intriguing!
6) Distinctive, distant-sounding beat, and low audio quality vocals. Slightly exotic sound. 7) Satisfying, full-sounding harmonies in the chorus, outer space-like on the verses. 8) Short and sweet. Sky-high vocals with guitar, whistles, light trombone. 9) Like a musical afterthought; soft instrumentals and light vocals. 10) Light shaker percussion, cool (as in temperature) keyboard.
