ReviewEdit

Aqueduct is simply David Terry, his laptop and a notebook full of catchy pop hooks a witty lyrics. Sounds familiar huh? Too bad this is way too addictive to just toss aside. Each song is shaped around slightly overdone drum beats, blippy synthesizers, usually a strong piano line, Terry’s Brock-esque vocals and the occasional Theremin. The album starts very strong, but loses a little momentum as it reaches the later tracks. While the critics are calling for comparisons to The Flaming Lips, Grandaddy, Frank Black Francis and, of course, The Postal Service; I hear Volcano, I’m Still Excited!! with electronics. The fact of it is, i Sold Gold is catchy bedroom pop that I already know you can’t resist, so what’s the point of fighting it? It’s definitely not the most thought-provoking or difficult music you have heard, but it’s catchy and will make you shake your ass… and I know you’d rather dance than think any day. Michael Ardaiolo
