Kasiercartel - March Forth
March Forth is the debut album from Brooklyn, NY duo KaiserCartel. The group is comprised of the real life couple Courtney Kaiser and Benjamin Cartel (hence the clever nomenclature).
Unlike other two-person outfits, Kaiser and Cartel don't feel the need to make lots of clatter to make their point. Don't expect anything like The White Stripes, The Kills, or heaven forbid Death From Above 1979. Think more She & Him.
What we do get from KaiserCartel are 12 tracks worth of inviting, charming pop ditties that would make Evan Dando jealous.
Simple, warm vocals lend a homespun feel to the record. They in turn are perfectly backed by a musical soundtrack in which no note is superfluous. Every cello bow, xylophone beat, and mellotron whir have a purpose.
Songs like "Oh No", "Okay", and the whistle-infused "Season Song" are as good as any indie pop song you will hear this summer.
