((Say Hi)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Say Hi to Your Mom, a.k.a. Eric Elbogen, play wonderful bedroom pop songs with heavy reliance on the home computer. These are synth-laden, utterly catchy songs with playful lyrics that, among other things, take the piss out of hipsters. While hipsters may be a pretty easy target for scorn, I don't find these lyrics to be too clever for their own good at all. Though, some might say Elbogen should look in the mirror -- he is an indie rocker after all.

Perhaps it's because the music itself is very sweet and heartfelt that Say Hi to Your Mom works so well. And save for one shaky cover of "I'm so Tired," all the songs on his latest album, Numbers & Mumbles, are close to perfect pop. One of the best lo-fi geek acts of 2004.
