HOLMES-Complication Simplified

The title of Holmes‘ fourth album, “Complication Simplified,” is perfect.  Their brand of pop music is intricate but fundamentally simple: It’s got a good beat, and a nice, sing-a-long chorus.  The band’s last album was all covers, and I liked it a lot.  This one is all originals, and with an almost entirely new lineup to boot.  In fact, the band’s only constant is Roy Shakked (who really is “Holmes”), and he brings a new group of Los Angeles based musicians every time.

It’s slick, glossy pop.

Give it a try.  I especially recommend “Pressing My Luck.”
