This Is The Review on This Is Ivy League

24Apr08


This Is Ivy League – This Is Ivy League (Twentyseven Records)

I guess i have a sweet tooth for sweet music. i like indie pop. So when This Is Ivy League’s self-titled album showed up in my mail box, I couldn’t resist to give it a full and fair listening.

Although the promoter’s sticker compared them to Vampire Weekend, they also mentioned Parliament/Funkadelic (who one of the members played guitar with occasionally), which canceled out the VW reference.

There is a nice mix of instruments. The vocals are nice. The folk mixed with pop is nice. The lyrics are nice. Overall, It’s nice. No matter the track, it always breaks into a catchy pop hook and chorus. How nice.

Favorite tracks include the poppy “The Richest Kids In Town.” and the horn-introduced “Love Is Impossible.”

  1. The Richest Kids In Town
  2. Love Is Impossible
  3. London Bridges
