Dananananaykroyd - ‘Hey Everyone!’ Cover

This record is brilliant. Dananananaykroyd have absolutely no sympathy for formulaic song structures; in fact, they defy them.

This record is brilliant. Dananananaykroyd have absolutely no sympathy for formulaic song structures; in fact, quite the opposite: they defy them with a rare expertise that has to be cherished. More remarkable is that in doing this, they cram in more pop hooks than should be allowed by law. If there was a regulatory monopolies panel on how many standout, infectious movements should be afforded within single songs, ‘Hey Everyone!’ would be banned. Their devellish ability to meld punk experimentalism with an indie-pop sensibility is fantastic. Given the chance to capture these 12 songs in the first-rate studio environment they deserve, Dananananaykroyd have raised the bar for 2009.
