Say Hi Um, Uh Oh on LP + Download
Um, Uh Oh is the result of the last ten years of Eric Elbogen's experiences with failing relationships, both musical and otherwise. It is also his best record to date. It's weary and blue-noted, revealing, personal and pained and there's expressiveness in his performance absent from previous releases. In fact, it's difficult to fathom that the same songwriter that once wrote the sugary frivolity of the early Say Hi material could have written such a mature collection of songs. If you've been a fan in the past, you're going to feel that Um, Uh Oh is a large step in the evolution of the band. If you haven't, this is the record that's going to change your mind.
