Biography

Because there isn't any year in the life that fails to bring us more than a few surprises, some great, some weird, with a few low points for good measure, you just never know what's coming up next, but maybe that's OK.  Those who learn from history are doomed to be looking for the next bright spot and being glad to say they were there when it happened.

Product Description

Wheat's fourth full-length effort arrives -- finally -- from Aware via Columbia, a full four years after the attractive indie fuzz of Hope and Adams. The label woes that caused the delay are notable only in their role as threshers for shucking Wheat from limbo to Aware, and turning Per Second, Per Second, Per Second...Every Second into the perfect record to shop at the end of 2003. In many ways, the Cambridge, MA, trio is like a Toad the Wet Sprocket for the 21st century. Just as Glen Phillips and his pals made mature pop music for a mid-'90s audience burned out on grunge, Wheat wants to dance with John Mayer's people, if only to show off the sculpted indie scuff on its fancy popternative shoes. Hope helmsman and Mercury Revver Dave Fridmann returns for Per Second. He tricks out relatively sweet and straightforward songs like "These Are Things," "I Met a Girl," and "Life Still Applies" with enough layered vocal and instrumental dynamics to posit them sufficiently past normal, but close enough to the mainstream to read the tag on its bra strap. It doesn't get much more accessible than "Some Days"' ooh ooh oohs and propulsive, almost dance-pop beat. But Wheat's lyrics are laced with a wry wit and touching resignation that makes the cut something more than radio-friendly pap. "Love takes its time/And I don't know a thing about it," Scott Levesque sings. "And some days you change your mind/Because I sure change my mind a lot about you." The alternate-channel vocal effects, snatches of conversation, and clutch of crunchy/swirling guitars punching up the radio rock riff only make it more uniquely accessible. Other highlights include "Hey, So Long (Ohio)," which delves back into the dream pop references of the band's early work, and "Closer to Mercury," a cleaned-up version of Hope and Adams' "Don't I Hold You." (Curiously, the song appears for a second time as a hidden bonus track, in a version much closer to its first incarnation.) Per Second, Per Second, Per Second...Every Second is a welcome return for Wheat, and one that should re-energize original fans while clogging its dance card with new ones. As a final comment on the band's appropriate marketing and sonic positioning, Glen Phillips -- recent Aware solo signee -- contributes guest vocals to "These Are Things."

Assumptions may be the mother of all things bad but I would suggest that expectations do a better job when referring to albums. With cheerless irony, let us assume that one expected Wheat to follow up the critically acclaimed "Hope and Adams" with more of the same. After all, the stylistic jump from the debut, "Medeiros" to "Hope and Adams" was certainly not massive. Such expectation was shattered when along the way, the art house band get signed to a major record label and out of a bizarre sense of spite, the album is immediately rubbished by fans. At the age of eighteen it is terrible for ones favorite cool band to get popular right? Where "Per Second..." is certainly not the best album ever, it is written and produced with flair, imagination and skill. The clear stylistic jump from "Hope and Adams" is to me a good thing. A lot of what made "Hope and Adams" unique and likeable has admittedly been lost yet replaced with slick pop song writing, catchiness and even greater style at the hands of David Fridmann. This album is a pop/rock album that deserves radio airplay that I am certain it will be denied adding a further sense of irony to this review.

If you have even heard of Wheat you are doing well. They are one of those non-comercial bands that make beautful alternative music, for the sake of music itself. 'Don't I hold you' from Hope and Adams will always be my favorite song, but this new album is also very good. Though some of the songs, eg. number 6, sound quite simple, most of the others are very, very good. Number 5 is so good it sends shivers down my spine. Overall this album is a fantastic addition to the music collection of anyone who loves calm alternative music, and you just know its one that very few other people have.

After waiting 4 years since thier last effort 'hope and adams' perhaps i set myself up to be dissapointed.
This is not a bad album at all but it sounds very safe and predictable throughout.
It is a more mature album than 'hope and adams' but it seems with that maturity comes a blandness, this sounds like it comes from any year in the last 20, unlike the last album which had much more of an edge with its ambient and abstract production.
During 50 minutes of this album i was really hoping something new was going to happen, but it never did, in fact there are songs that sound really similar,you can sing 'i met a girl' along to the chorus of 'some days' due to the almost identical bass line.
So im there thinking 'has this band run out of ideas?' then comes a hidden track, an inferior version of 'dont i hold you' from their previous album stripped of all emotion, really not needed.
I must stress again that this is not a bad album 'hey so long' has some really nice touches and the melody of 'the beginner' rivals 'dont i hold you' in the goosebumps contest.
I hope its a grower but i just expected something a bit more inventive from wheat.
