The lead singer of Eleventyseven, Matt Langston, has released several of his own side projects: This Christmas (a single), Heta Himlen (full album), and his newest - Embellish (EP). All three are glazed and smothered in electronic pop. The Jellyrox style reminds me of Adam Young’s Owl City. It’s similar, and especially noticeable in the quirkier songs. You could certainly dance along to them.

Where do I start? I already mentioned the Owl City comparison, the electronic pop, and the quirkiness of his EP, but I haven’t stated my favorite songs yet. I found the whole EP to be awesome, but there were three or four tracks that especially hit me.

“Condo In Neverland” is a most amusing piece. The lyrics are witty and lively with “I want a condo in neverland, me and the lost boys hangin’ every weekend. I want a poker night with peter pan…” If you’re an Owl City lover, you’ll like this song. I guarantee the love. It practically oozes mirth.

“Rebel Tide” is more toned down. There are some electronic bits, but it’s a smooth and beautiful song. I must say, I particularly enjoyed Matt Langston’s vocals in this one. He owns an amazing voice and it really shined in “Rebel Tide” with lyrics like “And it takes you by surprise like a rebel tide, like lightning from the sky, has been searching for ya.”

And there’s “Someone Else” – I think it’s a song that everyone can relate to. The lyrics follow along the feelings of wanting to be someone else and then learning to like you - yourself - for who you are. In the end it’s about being content with how you were created. The lyrics are great following this process: “don’t spend it wishing you were someone else, in a different circumstance, with a different set of plans.” It’s an extremely catchy song.

I’m a huge fan of any style or flow of music that’s optimistic and plain ol’ happy. My heart stirs every time I listen to the jumpy waves of melody and creative lyrics. I need fun, and really, everyone needs a bit of whimsicalness. Owl City is a prime example of that, and now, so is The Jellyrox. Yay! I’m so glad I found you, Embellish EP and I salute you Matt Langston. I love your artistic work. Keep it up.

Slightly Obsessed #184: The Mark of Maturity

The infant finishes his bottle and smiles contentedly up at his mother. A trickle of milk courses down from the corner of his mouth. It’s a sweet scene because that’s what babies do. They are born with immature digestive systems and no teeth. Mother’s milk or formula are necessary for the child to survive and thrive. As they grow, their teeth begin to come in, their digestive abilities mature, and they can tolerate solid food.
