 Rich Arithmetic


Kool Kat Musik

This album, first in a long time by Arithmetic, is beholden to a lot of 60s pop, largely the Beatles, with trippy lyrics about love and life.

Some of the songs, like “A Girl's Reply,” featuring Diane Leigh, and “One Thing,” featuring Maura Kennedy of Pete and Maura Kennedy fame, sound like a punky take on the Jefferson Airplane. I like the way this album updates their sound.

So if you want some good pop that updates older sounds, this is an album to get. Light, but not lightweight, it goes down easy, while still having an edge.
