Released: Jun 2011
Label: Dovecote Records
New York's Hooray for Earth take the best of '80s synth-pop, lace it in dreamy psychedelia and let it soar. The band's debut album has a modern Depeche Mode punch mixed with the earthy eccentricities of Yeasayer. Lilting melodies are built on pure synthesizer magic that sometimes sounds like a bubbling digital bath, other times like a room full of lasers; polyrhythmic beats add flair to frontman Noel Heroux's languid vocals, which sound beamed in from another planet. Highlights include "Realize It's Not the Sun," "Last Minute" and "True Loves."
