Don't think I've posted this, so I'll roll with it. Wasn't sold on this guy (formerly known as Bye Bye Blackbird up until May 2010 or so) after hearing the Happy High single, but this album made me a fan.
So much to like here, and even though it's probably considered your standard chillwave fare, there's nothing very standard about it. What doesn't sound effective ends up working as songs such as "Hawaii" and "Sunspray" end up sticking around for long periods of time. A strong piece of work by a little-known artist who should be able to get more attention in 2011.
