After releasing some of the best pop music in the last five years, which 99% of you reading this have never heard before, Not Lame has taken hold of some of that material (7 songs) and added 5 more new songs to introduce today`s pop fans to a criminally overlooked talent. Pledging allegiance to the united states of Melody, Hooks and Song Craftsmanship, Alitzer exhibits some of the finest pure pop magic you`ll hear this year. Fans of the Grays work from Jon Brion and Jason Falkner will find much to enjoy here, as well as labelmate Doug Powells` work. (All Tie Zur) contains and endless supply of music laced with lush, melodic hooks that combine honest lyrical observation and wry metaphor. Points of music reference are hard for such a unique talent, but pin us to the mat and we`ll mention label mate, Doug Powell and the purest pop moments of Adrian Belew and his work with The Bears; Belew guests on guitar on a few of the songs here. Melody drenched at every turn, etched with Beatley harmonies and exquisite production create a long lasting impression that will leave Not Lame fans speechless. Old fans will have mouths agape enjoying his fresh and evolved new material.
