Say Hi To Your Mom

January 25, 2008

What fun is being into indie rock if you can’t love a band that none of your friends have ever heard of? For several years, Say Hi To Your Mom has been one of my favorites for this very reason. Eric Elbogen, aka Say Hi, nee Say Hi To Your Mom, has put out some really great stuff, some of the best of which he gives away on his website. Let’s Talk About Spaceships and Hooplas Involving Circus Tricks are two of my favorite songs of all time, by any band, and they’re free on his website.

So the boy has a new album out, The Wishes and the Glitch. Three tracks are available for free from The Wishes. Northwestern Girls, Toil and Trouble, and Zero to Love. They’re all quite good: literate, well arranged, tuneful, fun songs. Admittedly nothing shakes my world, there isn’t that moment of discovery like the first time I heard Spaceships, that spark of who is that and why haven’t I heard of him before? Still, the boy is talented, and if you haven’t heard of him, give him a listen.
