The Scheme - Sunset on a Daydream - 2006


Paisley shirts, little toy men made from apples and gumdrops and toothpicks, dreamy harmonies, crystal clear production, soaring vocals, harpsichords and Mellotron synthesizers create the best Beach Boys album that Brian Wilson didn't have anything to do with. Could almost pass for 'Pet Sounds II', if there were any songs about surfing and hot rods. But, because he concocted this brew of delectable pop in Boston, the songs are about sidewalks, front door keys, and nightclubs in Cambridge's Central Square. And the basic power pop elements are all here, as well: ringing guitars, catchy melodies, and break-up songs! - The Noise

The elements are there. The vocal is a little less pretty, but thanks.

Hi Curty,

Excuse the comment clutter...
Wanted to let you know that we were zapped by The Man, but were back with a new home. If you could update us in your links, it would be greatly appreciated.
