Say Hi "Diamonds & Donuts"
(trying my hardest to resist the urge to write “Say hi to the new Say Hi album). So, uh… please… (don’t do it) uh… welcome the new… I’m sorry Eric! I can’t do it! Please, everyone, say hi to the new Say Hi album! (whew. I feel so much better now). Diamonds & Donuts is as much fun as one can have listening to an indie-pop, quirky danceable rock album. Eric Elbogen’s Say Hi project is as close to a genre unto itself as any artist recording music today. Fun. Electro. Generally concept-y in album release. Fun visuals. Really, it is it’s own thing. As is evidenced by the A-1 fun song of the year, the earworm “Lookachu.”
