I’d like to say that the lime-green Jello color is not used enough on vinyl releases; it looks quite¬†resilient! Anyway Ohio band Aloha’s seminal album,¬†Here Comes Everyone, got repressed for Record Store Day nearly ten years after it came out. If you like slick guitar licks, and world elements in your indie rock, this album’s definitely for you. If you like bands such as Apostle of Hustle, it comes heartily recommended from me that you check these guys out. Polyvinyl has provided a succinct and spot-on description of what¬†Here Comes Everyone sounds like, along with some factoids, which I’ve provided down in the details below this. Also below is a Spotify stream of¬†Here Comes Everyone. Check it out and see what you think of it. Cheers!
Here Comes Everyone launches the retooled Aloha machine with a fury of stick-to-the-ribcage blasts and shimmering ballads. Aloha adds the orchestral pop of the late '60s and the post-prog rock of the '80s to its big-thinking, rhythm-rich repertoire. Engaging yet contemplative, Aloha crosses the experimental/populist divide.
Here Comes Everyone brings the listener on a fevered tour of post-modernity, from the edge cities to the urban enclaves, from buried history to the impending future. What can't be painted with words is told by yearning mellotrons, spikey guitars, and graceful chord changes.
With the help of Don Zientara and Chad Clark at Inner Ear/Silver Sonya Studios (where new Aloha member T.J. Lipple works as an engineer), the band sounds warmer than ever, with all the spirit of a basement-show sensation and the gloss and confidence of an arena rocker.
