While the first couple of seconds of Oberhofer’s “AWY FRM U” makes you think that you are watching a commercial for cat food, as soon as Brad Oberhofer voice chimes in, the vibe changes instantly. If you are a fan of Electric Tickle Machine or The So So Glo’s then chances are that if they had a love child, Oberhofer would be it. With easy to learn lyrics and a very catchy tune played on the xylophone, Oberhofer makes it almost too easy to listen to them over and over again. Or as my hippie dippy sister might say, “it’s just happy, low fi tribal music man.” To which I replied “couldn’t agree more.”
