Not The Same Old Halou

If you bought this EP thinking you were going to hear the same old halou you were used to, be prepared...this isn't just another ethereal soundscape awash in lush vocals. The band is going out on a limb a little with their core fan base, but that's not always a bad thing. Sawtooth gets right to business on the first track, grabs you and doesn't let you go. The title of the EP is fitting as well in that the crunchiness of their guitars and the combination of Rebecca's smooth vocals is at the same time rough like the sound of a saw cutting through wood but at the same time soothing. The lyrics tell more of a story for me on this EP more than any of their previous albums and I appreciate the less obscure song titles. I feel the band has grown and matured musically and it shows. As with most EPs at the end I was left wanting more which to me is the perfect finish.

The Sound of the 21st Century

Halou is the perfect blend of technology and heartfelt songwriting. The “Sawtooth – EP” continues their tradition of innovative sound design and musical performance. They are truly a great band. Check them out

I'd like a little more Halou in my Halou

Eh... This is tough for me. I consider myself a huge, huge Halou fan. In fact, their last album, "Wholeness & Separation," is one of my favorite albums ever made. It's pure perfection. This new EP is missing what I can only describe as "that Halou atmosphere." There was always an ethereal quality to their music that really made them stand out. A lot of it had to do with the hooks and electronic flourishes. Sadly, this one has a lack of both. Nothing really sets this apart from a variety of other shoegazer rock bands (like Denali, for example), aside from Rebecca's wonderful vocals. The song "Clipped" sounds like a rather generic punk song, which I guess just isn't my thing at all. The exception to all this (and the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 3) is the song "It Will All Make Sense In the Morning." I love love LOVE this song. Definitely up there with their best. And the rest of the EP isn't bad - it just doesn't wow me at all like their other stuff. In particular, I like "Breath Makes Smoke" and the new (and improved) version of "Hollywood Ending," but they're nowhere near the level of "It Will All Make Sense In the Morning." I sincerely hope this EP isn't completely indicative of what the new full-length will sound like. I'm hoping this will grow on me, though, with repeat listens. Perhaps it will all make sense in the morning? R O C K E T

Biography

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Unlike many of the colder-sounding tunes that are prevalent in electronica music, Halou's sound is infused with plenty of emotion thanks to Rebecca Coseboom's vocals. She is a perfect foil for the compositions of her husband, Ryan Coseboom. The couple started combining their talents in Santa Cruz, CA, in 1992. They migrated several years later to San Francisco and first formed a group called Anymore. Their first recording under the name Halou, We Only Love You, was issued through Bedazzled, a label...
