Music Review – Ms. John Soda, Notes and the Like
The musical stylings of Stephanie Bohm and Micha Acher, collectively Ms. John Soda, are right up there with your favorite tee shirt. Similar to that shirt, this music could be played anywhere, during any time of day, no matter what mood you are in, or who you are with.
This collection of deceptively catchy pop-electronica may get even the most resistant listeners to warm up to this rebirth of Radiohead-style music. Each song builds slowly and deliberately, becoming more exciting and interesting every second.
Notes and the Like, the band’s second full-length release, delivers subtle and clean loops that cushion sexy and, at times, eerie vocals. One song and the melodic veneer of this German duo will whisk you away.
