Ginger, Baby, the eclectic debut album by indie-rockers Father Bloopy on Dippy Records, has a classic sound that you'd swear you've heard before. The lead-off title track is so catchy that at first listen you find yourself singing along as if it is one of your longtime favorite songs. The only problem is that these are new songs, by a new band, comprised of a bunch of kids in their early twenties. Self-described diehards and collectors of early 60s and 70s art-rock, Father Bloopy's first album pays homage to a variety of obvious influences, including The Kinks, Lou Reed, and ELO, but they add a unique flair and a modern twist to the mix that is edgy and invigorating. Clever as hell from start to finish, Ginger, Baby is filled with wry, witty lyrics that will please fans of smart-pop in addition to those who feast on catchy melodies and creative production. "Houdaille's mix of swoon and croon finds him approximating an unlikely collision between Ray Davies and Devendra Banhart, a quirky combination that finds a surprisingly good fit with the densely textured mélange." -Miami New Times "Brightly catchy songs loaded with hooks, and pleasant surprises. A dozen tracks overflowing with dynamic pop power and good vibes." -Dream Magazine "One minute Roger Houdaille is Jonathan Richman jamming with Brian Eno on the title track, with similar Lou Reed talk-singing, the next he's Ray Davies doing wistful poptunes like 'Pepper Tan' or 'Miss Morality." -The Big Takeover Limited digipack edition.
