The fourth record from this Brooklyn band "...recalls the futuristic feeling of Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie...that intellectual battle with impending modernity and the feeling of alienation from real humanity explored by Grandaddy and Radiohead...Eno-esque with eerie, fantastical motifs" - Spin. Their brand of quirky indie-pop on previous efforts has garnered critical acclaim and chart topping radio play (#26 on CMJ's Top 200), landed them TV spots on MTV and CBS, and earned them live slots with the likes of American Analog Set, Mates Of State, The Wrens, John Vanderslice, and Headphones, as well as a full tour as main support for Nada Surf. This new record is their first for The Rebel Group. "Cheeky, fuzzy electro-pop" - LA Times. "A delightfully fractured fairytale of Williamsburgian proportions" - Time Out NY. "On a homemade PC, Say Hi assembles slow, statuesque indie rock with analog synthscapes, overlapping distorted guitars and lots of low-end" - Pitchfork.

A cd about vampires before the Twilight hype. I Love listening to this cd. It has a great lo-fi sound with entertaining lyrics. Sweet Sweet Heartkiller, Blah Blah Blah, and These Fangs are highly recommended.
Impeccable Blahs - SHTYM

"Attention 30 somethings... sick of that angry, pouting, self-glorifying, heavily marketed and over-produced garage music? I am... and I bless the day when the cocky angst-ridden cd store kid pulled this gem out of a haystack of INDIE releases... and presented it to me... smirking at me like I might be too lame to appreciate it...
SHTYM creates very clever music - simple yet memorable melodies... very creative lyrics that fully employ your tacit knowledge.
This music does not rock... it does not make you feel like you are flying, fighting or saving the world... it won't set you on fire... But it's what you want to reach for when you are alone...
You'll listen to it a lot. It will never really make it into your storage bin... it will probably stay surfaced in close proximity to your stereo for easy and frequent access... You'll be anxiously awaiting their next release...
This was the first CD I purchased from them... I love it. I have since purchased all of them... A few other tracks from other albums that you really don't want to miss out on are: A Hit in Sweden, Super (from Numbers and Mumbles) and Dersmormos... (from discosadness)
A Definite Leap In A New Direction

"If you are a Say Hi To Your Mom fan like I am, when you think of them you think of one thing;Robots. Robots have always been mentioned and been apperently there highest source of inspiration. Now, with this release they have spun off in a new direction, Vampires. And it coulnd't have worked out cooler.
Everything I love about Say Hi is still here; the quirky yet awesome lyrics, the slow yet dancey synth and keyboards tunes, and the mellow yet fun vocal stylings.
If your looking for a fun lo-fi album, than this is for you. But I recommend if your new to Say Hi, start with Numbers And Mumbles.
