The Simple Carnival: Aliens EP
This EP consists of 1/3 of The Simple Carnival's 2008 album, Girls Aliens Food. A newly-remastered version of Girls Aliens Food can be found on iTunes.
The Simple Carnival is not so much a band as it is the pop brainchild of Jeff Boller, a Pittsburgh-based singer/songwriter/musician who plays all thirty or so instruments on this EP, the second in a series.
It sparkles with a late-seventies AM pop radio feel: sunshine pop-influenced harmonies, soaring melodies, tack piano, handclaps, and vintage keyboards dominate. Jangly guitars make several appearances, but any trace of a fuzz pedal is curiously absent.
