Sad Like Crazy

Sad Like Crazy

Love Songs to Death

Ojet

An impressive offering of twenty-two songs that jump and sparkle in true indie fashion. Moving from Pavment-esque melodics to a strangeness in the dynamics that makes me think of early Beck at the same time as I’m thinking of Yo La Tengo. Male and female vocals sing alone and together, adding to the heartfelt quirkiness and emotional honesty of this album. There’s a slight folksy feel to some of these songs, but all wrapped up in a love of pop – the rock, the hook, the catch, and you’re caught by the pure innocence of these songs. It’s all about the music, and there’s a place that this music comes from. Perhaps bands like Pavement found it, and then moved on. Sad Like Crazy has found it as well, and it looks like they’ve set up camp. Hope they stay awhile.
