iTunes Review

Led by saxophonist/composer Stuart Bogle, Superhuman Happiness turn their sophomore album, Hands, into a surreal dance party full of skewed angles and giddy rhythms. The Brooklyn septet boast a formidable collective résumé—Bogle, for instance, has played on sessions for Iron & Wine and TV on the Radio, in addition to serving as conductor for the Afrobeat combo Antibalas. Ultimately, such background info matters less than the sheer inventiveness that SH bring to these tracks. The songs on Hands strike a balance between tight structures and freewheeling musicianship, fusing elements of funk, free jazz, punk, and world beat. The lyrics radiate sunny vibes with a hint of subversion; the grooves tug and tease as they raise a sweat. Bogle’s squalling sax drives the music forward while guitarists Luke O’Malley and Ryan Ferreira lay down choppy yet deft lines. The slap-happy clatter of “Elevator Elation,” the buoyant glide of “Second Heart” and the spacy throb of “I Can Hear You Calling” testify to the band’s eclectic ambition. Gang vocals on tunes like “Our Favorite Part” further boost the album’s bubbly mood.

Customer Reviews

Pure Superhuman Happiness

Unless you hate fun, buy this album. I dare anyone to listen to this album and not clap, dance, or sing along. I've seen them a couple times too, and they are just the embodiment of happiness. Get ready because these guys are definitely going to be doing big things soon


My ears are tingling with pleasure!

This Is Our Favorite Part

Superhuman Happiness is one of Brooklyn's best modern bands. After seeing them live on several occasions, I'd been awaiting this record for nearly a year. It's everything I was hoping for more. The songwriting is sharp, the arrangements big and intelligent, the spirit joyous and overflowing. When Superhuman Happiness jump into '80s pop, they don't do it with smug hipster irony, but with a reverence for the best records of that period. When they experiment with dense art rock, it's not to show off chops, but to push themselves and the listener into new sonic territory. When Superhuman Happiness throws down a dance party groove, you can't help but be moved. "Sentimental Pieces," "Elevator Elation" and "See Me On My Way" are just a few of the highlights. This is HANDS down (pun intended) one of the best records we'll hear in 2013!
