Say Hi to release 'The Wishes And The Glitch' + tour dates (SXSW)

Say Hi - Eric Elbogen

'The Wishes And The Glitch' is the fifth release from Say Hi principle Eric Elbogen (yes, this is the former Say Hi To Your Mom). It doesn't take too many spins to hear that something very different is happening on his latest effort. The barrage of indiepop songs that fills 'The Wishes And The Glitch's' thirty-six minutes is musically richer than anything Elbogen has done before. Keyboards chime and swoosh, drums bump, basslines wiggle and vocal melodies shoot and fall, converging at the expected intersections some places and surprising with new tangents others.

Newly transplanted to Seattle, WA, the Brooklyn, NY founded Say Hi formed in late 2002, as was Euphobia Records, a label started by Elbogen to facilitate the band's releases. After relocating to Seattle, Elbogen wrote and recorded 'The Wishes And The Glitch' at his home studio over the bulk of 2007. Touring keyboardist/vocalist Nouela Johnston (the touring line-up for Say Hi is ever-evolving) contributed vocals on three of the songs. The Long Winters' John Roderick and Pedro The Lion / Headphones' David Bazan also sing on a track each. Everything else was performed by Elbogen, himself.
