album review:: Say Hi: The Wishes And The Glitch

Say Hi released its new album The Wishes And The Glitch this week. Built on a cyclical riff that wholly shrouds the dense field
“Northwestern Girls,” will achieve by the time it reaches maximum velocity, this is just one of the many treats on Say Hi’s The Wishes And The Glitch. The sci-fi “woo ooh woo oohs” on electronic dance throb “Toil And Trouble,” accent the rise into totemic frenzy, where the tune peaks and dies. The harmonies and hyperdrums continue with the pulsating “Back Before We Were Brittle,” reminding me of the mood and atmosphere many great British bands dealt out in the eighties, only with a modern twist. Throughout The Wishes And The Glitch, it is apparent that these songs were meticulously assembled, so as to achieve the sort of subtle excellence and groove found on “Magic Beans And Truth Machines,” which has a melody somewhere in the Postal Service vein. If you like “Northwestern Girls,”(featured below) then rest assured you will be well suited with this one. In fact, I haven’t heard an album with this much electronics in a long time, that I found so enjoyable. Finally, if you can imagine the sound of an icy atmosphere blown with a jet of warm air; The Wishes And The Glitch is the capture of that fleeting warmth.
