Boomkat Product Review:
Taking the skeletons of progressive rock and classic Chicago post-rock, Ohio based band Aloha have managed to construct an album of pure pop music. ‘Some Echoes’ is their fourth full length and is widely believed to be the best example of their work so far, happily condensing the wide reaching influences of earlier releases. Opening piece ‘Brace Your Self’ takes the tight rolling percussion and xylophone styles of Tortoise and overlays prog-style vocals and synths. It’s catchy and engrossing in the same way as Broadcast or Stereolab, yet at the same time it feels like so much more, there are so many things you could compare the band too, and they manage to sound out on their own. They’re probably best labelled in the same pile as new-prog heads Dungen with their early Genesis or Bo Hansson leanings but at the same time they don’t seem quite so knowingly retro. Rather they are a band with the same sort of talents as much of the Chicago scene (The Sea and Cake/Chicago Underground/Isotope 217/Tortoise) but utilising their skill to reach a different goal. One for fans of forward thinking indie pop activists Deerhoof, Sufjan Stevens and more, this is an album to treasure.
