The Aluminum Group Morehappyness

Like vanilla Hâagen-Dazs, the Aluminum Group plays rich, creamy, no-nonsense pop music. Regardless of the premium brand, it's still vanilla-and you're invariably left craving a sprinkle or two. Morehappyness, the Aluminum Group's latest, is more blandness from the brothers Navin: neatly arranged milieus of gliding synth and boy/boy harmonizing with impotent cameos from Tortoise and Sea & Cake. The album has an understated quality reminiscent of the Eames furniture collection after which they're named, but overall Morehappyness evokes little emotion. It's a good thing the Navins are gay, 'cause they'll never get any pussy making this stuff.
