Amoeba Review

06/23/2014

SomeKindaWonderful seemingly have come out of nowhere with a knockout first record of smart, radio-friendly pop rock that proves producing such music is easier said than done. The story goes that lead singer Jordy Towers left L.A. for the Midwest after a major label deal didn’t go so well (you may remember his almost-hit “Pretty Monsters,” with B.o.B.). While there, Towers hooked up with local musicians Ben Schigel and guitarist Matt Gibson, drunkenly jamming one night and coming up with future hit “Reverse,” which now can be found ruling rock radio with its “Be My Baby” Motown beat and Towers’ irresistible vocal hook. Good thing he made that move— Somekindawonderful aptly bounce between lust-fueled pub rock (“Cornbread,” “Honeymoon”) and soulful synth-pop (“Police,” “Hard for Days,” “Caveman”), somehow marrying the two in such a way that their songs wouldn’t sound out of place on just about any station. Led by Towers’ raspy croon, there doesn’t seem to be much that SomeKindaWonderful can’t (and don’t) do on their debut. Here’s to second chances.
