Say Hi – Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

Say Hi is Eric Ellbogen whose lo-fi indie act was based in Brooklyn when I discovered him a few years back. He relocated to Seattle for his last 2 albums and oddly enough the change has amped up his sound. Just compare the propulsive head-bobber of “Oh Oh….” (above) to his sophomore album’s “I think I’ll Be a Good Ghost” which is much more mellow, contemplative and dare I say “haunting?” No, no, I’ll spare you. Anyway, this dude has put out 6 albums in 6 and a half years and while the early ones aren’t fully formed I really think he hit his stride with last year’s The Wishes And The Glitch. “Northwestern Girls” (below) is the album’s fantastic opener and is followed by a stable of very solid tracks. Maybe more of those unlistenable art-rock hipster collectives from Brooklyn should head out to Seattle?

Say Hi (To Your Mom) – I Think I’ll Be A Good Ghost

Yeah, Say Hi To Your Mom was the full band name for the first 4 albums. I guess we all grow up someday…
