The CD! Local Seattle Band, Half Acre Day, releasing Fourteen Trips Around the Sun avail Nov 13th
Right off the bat, Anemone, the first cut off Fourteen Trips Around the Sun, digs its nails into you like a wildcat. It reminded me of an epic Weezer ballad. Slowly sneaking through it’s first couple light and poppy measures and them BAM it’s all over you and you’re hooked into looping it over and over on repeat. The rest of the album follows this first song up with concise, well written pop songs. Some psych-pop, some indie, and it becomes obvious that this band’s members not only play along, but all have a hand in creating and forming each piece. Fourteen Trips Around the Sun is a disc that can be listened all the way through from first to last. A rarity in CDs today.
Now, its clear that Half Acre Day is looking towards the future and it doesn’t take the multiple references to being bionic to tip you off. This album has the very real possibility of catcing on and making a dent in the mainstream. Overall it is brilliantly produced with entertaining lyrics, a good sense of humor, and catchy hooks that will help push their musical gospel in to the ages. And, if you’re looking for some sort of reference point on all this, just know even Archie McFee’s is pushing for them, and they know all.
