Oh Pep! - Stadium Cake
2016 Release from Oh Pep!
Stadium Cake is Oh Pep!'s debut album, recorded in Nova Scotia. Each of the duo's previous three EPs is a progression into ever more complex songwriting and intricate playing. They're funny at times, and they can be thoughtful and thought-provoking, sometimes in the same song. Stadium Cake expands on Hally and Emmerichs' talents, to the point where it surprised me how detailed and intricate they are as both players and listeners. On each listen, I've come to find new favorites, though "Doctor Doctor" and "The Race" were my first loves. Put this on repeat, and by the time you stop, phrases like, "I know what I want and it's not what I need" may be part of your own personal soundtrack.
