Your Daily Lick: Colossal Yes

Charlemagne's Big Thaw (Ba Da Bing Records)

Don’t be ashamed if you hear a bit of Ben Folds in this Oakland band’s sound; the similar vocal tones and shared passion for upbeat piano-rock are inesecapable. Beyond that, Colossal Yes’ sound is more outside and post-modern: flutes, harpsichord, and guitars (both buzzsaw and twanged-out) inhabit songs that are circuitous and unpredictable.
