OBERHOFFER/Time Capsules II: Available March 26th, 2012




Emotion is kind of the thing that drives the psychedelic peppy pop created by the oft-effervescent Oberhofer. Like the brain child of Brian Wilson and Descartes, he s fixated on the idea of his philosophically minded, energetic melodic romps making people happy-mostly because it s all he can bear to think about. Referring to his music in total as a time capsule of exactly how I m feeling at a given moment , each song is a clear unrestrained look inside the Oberhofer vault. And, between Like Gold , a reflection on two magical weeks spent with a first love that inadvertently kicked off his current project, Away From U , an upbeat goodbye whose commercial sync garnered enough money to move out of his addict-filled apartment and the Gotta Go , the interpretation of bidding a woman adieu while also saying goodbye to your old process of getting work done, his heart s on his sleeve, on paper, and all over everything he creates.
