Reseña de álbum

Following the grandiose Baroque ambitions of the Jim O'Rourke-produced Pedals and the John Herndon-helmed electro-pop of Pelo, the Aluminum Group's fifth LP, Happyness, is both a return to their roots and a continuation of all that's come before, recalling the sly, sophisticated synth melodies of the Plano album while at the same time incorporating the torch ballad elegance, layered arrangements, and programmed beats that made intervening efforts so rewarding. The first installment of a proposed trilogy, Happyness (misspelling theirs) boasts a cinematic flair that conjures a Chicago nightlife much too stylish and cool to actually exist. Rarely, if ever, have synths sounded so truly urbane, and the cumulative effect is postmodernist pop music that sounds simultaneously cutting edge, retro, and utterly timeless.

The aluminum group have been one of my faves ever since I saw them live promoting the "pedals" album. If you love lush pop music that stands the test of time-- and doesn't fit into any specific genre-- (other than a "i can't get that song out of my head genre) then you can't do better than these guys, and the immaculate body of work they have produced thus far.

Good ol' Aluminum Group as always.

I've always liked this band, their lyrics and beats are so deceptively simple and sweet you don't immediately realize that some of their songs have a very dark undercurrent which adds layer after layer of meaning. This album is no exception, after listening to it all week I can safely say this album was worth the wait.

I couldn't be happyer

Thank goodness, at long last... A new Aluminum Group record is like a long lost weekend with long lost've never met. LITTLE HAPPYNESS is as warm and organic as the brothers' best work, with literate pop gems shoulder to shoulder, nary a dull note. The sheer joy at the center of the Aluminum Group is their uncanny ability to deliver paradox -- warm electronics, heartbroken hopefulness, aching joy -- as accessible pop melodies. As usual, Frankie and John's voices blend together like whiskey and coffee, and the production and playing is top-notch. At first blush, this record feels like a career high point... Don't hesitate. Wrap yourself up in LITTLE HAPPYNESS and warm up your car, your headphones, your life. There won't be a better record in any of the 11 1/2 months left in aught-eight. So yeah, I kind of like it.


Género: Alternativa

Años de actividad: '00s

Named in honor of a line of furniture designed by Charles and Ray Eames, the Chicago-based chamber-pop outfit the Aluminum Group was led by brothers John and Frank Navin, longtime staples of the Wicker Park music scene who first surfaced in 1983 as members of the hardcore band Women in Love. Always harboring a secret affecton for the music of the Carpenters and Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, the Navins eventually formed the Aluminum Group, stubbornly pursuing their brand of lushly orchestrated pop...
