Noah Kussack - A Momentary Lapse In The Key Of W (CD)
Release Date: 10/05/10
XOXO/Mother Night frontman's solo LP elevates his harmonious hooks & melodies to new highs w/ producer James Paul Wisner
As prequel to their LP, XOXO / Mother Night front man & lead songwriter Noah Kussack collaborated with renowned producer James Paul Wisner (Dashboard Confessional / New Found Glory / Paramore). These recordings emphasizes Kussack's infectiously catchy songwriting, elevating his harmonious vocal hooks & melancholy melodies to new heights. 'A Momentary Lapse In The Key Of W' diverts from the Moog laced dance pop of XOXO's college radio embraced 'C'est La Vie' EP. The songs have a powerful anthemic aesthetic, full of chiming guitars, driving bass lines & liberally used piano riffs. The second half of the disc reveals Kussack's pop aptitude; presented stripped down & acoustic yet still rich with melody. With just the right amount of ooh la las injected to put these gems on repeat play in your mind, this is bright, up-tempo indie-pop that revels in its glory. Mix in a couple of covers, from New Order & The Kinks, and who can resist a little Noah'
