• say hi Um, Uh Oh (LP, £19.95)

    label: Barsuk Records

    ‘Um, Uh Oh’ is the result of the last ten years of Elbogen's experiences with failing relationships, both musical and otherwise. It is also his best record to date. It's weary and blue-noted, revealing, personal and pained and there's expressiveness in his performance absent from previous releases. In fact, it's difficult to fathom that the same songwriter that once wrote the sugary frivolity of the early Say Hi material could have written such a mature collection of songs. Tracks: Dots On Maps / Devils / All The Pretty Ones / Take Ya’ Dancin’ / Posture, Etc. / Sister Needs A Settle / Lookin’ Good / My, How It Comes / Shiny Diamonds / Handsome Babies / Trees Are A Swayin’ / Bruises To Prove It
