The World Palindrome: Particularly Hello
Reclusive genius Les Easterby returns with what may very well be the perfect smart pop record of 2012. Easterby (And Academy, The World Palestine) plays all the instruments on the 10 songs that comprise Particularly Hello. Listeners may hear elements of Pet Sounds-era Beach Boys and The Soft Bulletin-era Flaming Lips but those are merely guideposts for one of the most original undiscovered voices in American music.
Expertly composed and deftly produced Particularly Hello boasts an embarrassment of pop riches via songs such as “Pink Spot, Blue Star,” “We’ve Got It (All Worked Out)” and “Oh Bolivar.” This is pop music the way nature intended it.
