The Hippie Guitar Pop Of Topher Mohr

    On Memorial Day, my roommates and I grilled some hot dogs and burgers on our rooftop patio, cracked open some beers, and engaged in some good-old fashioned bonding over booze, food, music, and America. One of my roommates is a retired musician, and the conversation eventually turned to Hall & Oates. Talk about a band rescued from the cultural trash heap. Once mocked as 80s cheese, Hall & Oates have seen a massive resurgence in the last 5 years or so of cultural relevancy & (long overdue) respect. And it's not easy to guess why. Their combination of pop hooks, rock energy, and genuine R&B soul was unprecedented at the time, and in a day where genre-fusion and poptimism are king, they were there first. Topher Mohr is cut from that cloth, and we couldn't be happier to be premiering his track "Keep It Coming."

    The only way that I can immediately describe Topher Mohr is as Hall & Oates meets Tom Petty but with a touch of Dispatch. I suppose I might have also just said Allen Stone which is probably what I just described as well, but Topher has more of a pop-rock soul. But it's soulful guitar pop for the hippie set, and as part of said hippie set, I found myself grinning as I listened to the track. I listen to...a lot of music every day, and any time a music can cause a physical reaction, it's a plus. Maybe it was the long Memorial Day weekend and the fact that I'm rest and recharged, but it was definitely Topher Mohr as well. "Keep It Coming," Topher. "Keep It Coming," please.
