If you've been paying attention to my Last.FM you already know that I've been obsessing over the band, Say Hi To Your Mom. They've been topping my weekly charts for the past month. I'm a little late to jump on the bandwagon. They've been around since 2002, but I am only just hearing about them! Why oh why didn't anyone tell me about the awesomeness known as Say Hi To Your Mom? Actually, the band has decided to shorten their name to Say Hi with the release of their new album, The Wishes and The Glitch. The album will be released in stores on Feburary 8th, 2008, but is available for purchase online. I made the purchase and am very pleased. Check out the Say Hi store to make yours.
I forgot how I stumbled into this band, but I'm glad I did. I heard one song, fell in love, and immediately acquired the other 4 albums! A lot of times I find myself doing that with a band and being dissapointed! But not with Say hi! I fell deeper in love. I love the random lyrics and the whispery non-chalant(not in a bad way!)vocal style of lead singer Eric Elbogen. Each of the Say Hi albums has it's own charm, but my favorite is definitely Impeccable Blahs written oddly enough about vampires!
do yourself a favor and check this band out! Here are two of my favorite Say Hi songs. The first is the one that made me fall in love and the second is my all time favorite Say Hi song. Enjoy!
