Reseña de álbum

Sprites couldn't have picked a more appropriate title for their second full-length offering. The charming Modern Gameplay is full of quirky indie rock that sounds like the result of recording sessions that alternated between laying tracks down in one room and playing Space Invaders on an old Atari console in another — and yeah, some of that time probably overlapped. Jason Korzen and crew beef up the instrumentation more than on Sprites' semi-acoustic 2003 album, but regardless, everything still sounds pretty stripped down. Korzen's dry talk-singing is unwavering — he never exerts his voice more than what is necessary to utter words aloud — surrounded by small doses of guitar, percussion, synths, and little computerized blips to bop each understated track merrily along. The songs are delightfully geeky in their subject matter, delivered as though Korzen was just thinking aloud instead of relaying previously written-down sentiments.

The record is an extremely light listen, demanding nothing more from listeners than to simply sit back and enjoy. Sprites are completely refreshing in their straightforward, unironic approach, and consequently, Modern Gameplay is one of the most likable records of 2006.

As such, Korzen purposely created Sprites with the intention of its members being just a rotating cast of friends (devoid of the "backing band" label) who came together to hang out and perform, exclusive of commitment pressures. Korzen and his wife...
