Album Review

On its self-titled album, California-based Pseudopod blends mainstream pop with infusions of jazz and jam-oriented grooves. On the surface, the songs on this record appear to be formulaic, hook-laden, radio-friendly ditties. However, if one digs below the fluffy pop overtones, the musical deftness of the individual members is evident. In the middle of "Nevermind the Matter," there is a nice breakdown segment that shows off the band's musical complexity. "Dante" is another track where the group shines, Matt Keegan's jazz-infused sax solo and Ross Grant's stellar guitar work prove that they are much more than a three-chord garage band. Kevin Carlberg's vocals, when soft and mysterious, sound similar to Live's Ed Kowalczyk, and when he increases the energy, his sound morphs into more like that of Train's Patrick Monahan. Pseudopod is definitely a band that has the potential for greater things it can find a way to focus on the jazzy, intricate jam sound and minimize the straightforward pop/rock.

Sweeeeeet band!

this cd friggin rocks! pseudopod can mix jamming and sweet lyrics in a way that could be compared to O.A.R. and DMB...over all awesome stuff.

Great Band... too bad they broke up

This was an amazing live band and this cd is unbelievable.... buy it, you won't regret it

Different yet unforgettable

I saw this band open for the Clarks when I was in college. I listened to a few songs before going, and was so impressed I bought the CD before going to the show. Every song is exciting and original. The sax is sexy as hell in even the most upbeat of songs! I still throw this in every now and then now 7 years later. Good stuff! Would love to hear some new stuff if they reunite.
