The Bay area’s Weather Pending glides into the broadcast on the wings of their debut, full-length disc. And How! pulls together (10) lovely tracks of inventive indie-pop that ooze organic originality from every pore. Jazz, alternative, soul and electronica collide beautifully as Rob Cross masterfully lays down an unshakable foundation of bass and beats that give their music a noticeable bounce. Next, Brian Bloi adds a sprinkling of guitar work that pulls in smooth jazz phrasing and couples it with an unmistakable alternative vibe. The final ingredient…the enchanting vox of Janie Oliver. Listening to her warm tones and smooth, almost effortless, delivery gives me the warm fuzzies. Funny, I had the same kind of feeling the first time I heard Sade. Talented musicians with an honest, unmistakable and wonderfully original sound. Thumbs up!
