For its sheer force of personality, EverybodyEverybody, by New York's pop institution the Sharp Things, is a winner. The album is delightfully weird, creating full symphonies out of life's mundane moments (see "Family Day at the Lake" and "Sport's Drinking Again.") Frontman Perry Serpa's falsetto and pop affectations call to mind Brian Wilson, but that's not all the two share. The Sharp Things are ambitious, pushing the boundaries of pop music in a way that'll immerse you in waves of sound.
EverybodyEverybody is a deep dive, but it's also a refreshing one.
