The outskirts of Oberhofer
's lo-fi, bedroom creations come course in make-up. There's heaps of helpless yelping and devil-may-care fretwork encasing most of what the young Brooklyn outfit does...like some mossy blanket of electric fuzz. But it's slop that's an offshoot of a more euphonious core, and if you slurp up our latest live concert offering from the band, we guarantee you'll be putting back your recommended daily allowance of melodious nourishment in the process.
See, you'll hear it in the "oohhs" and "ahhs" of songs like "o0O0o0O0o" and "I Could Go As Well". It shuttles about in carefree whistling and glockenspiel passages. And then there's the personality at the helm of the outfit...Brad Oberhofer providing deadpan observations in the crevices that lie between songs. Like the sweet shot of nectar that it is, our latest concert release features gobs of home style pulp for a sweet and sugary finish. We suggest handling in multiple servings, daily. - David Pitz
