Blanket
Nice (Hush Records)

By: Alex Steininger

Jazzy, soft instrumentation with front man Crad Crouch's timid, distant voice, Blanket delivers music that shares traits with pop-rock, emo, and jazz, but is neither any of those nor all of these. Rather, Blanket falls underneath the Hush umbrella (Hush being Crouch's own label and studio), delivering singer-songwriter-esque songs with a flair.

Blanket, Crouch's band, also implements elements of Brit-Pop. Nice is best described as a lounge-pop album, one you can sit and relax too, dance along with, or just play for entertainment. Rooted in 50's, 60's, and 90's, this album is a good collection of pop if you like bands that revisit the old and attempt to make it new again. I'll give this a B.
