Saturday Looks Good To Me is the songs and experiments of Michigan-born songwriter and producer Fred Thomas. Since their almost accidental genesis the band has taken on many different forms and variations, channeling widely varied influences from the history of pop music and the world all around us to sculpt a very personal, intensely honest wall of sound.
Without ever straying from the goal of making perfect pop songs, this record draws deeper into a vault of personal feelings and intimate musical expressions, taking risks and trying to be as honest as possible. All the sounds are warm and urgent, joyful and kind of nervous, like an eerie celebration that starts right after something really horrible has happened. Lush string sections and electric piano lines dance with washed-out samples and bits of tape collages. Bouncy Smiths-like guitar lines stop abruptly and give way to White Album-esque melodies. Wordless voices rise up at once then fall away, everything has it's place.The lyrics and music both have shifted from the girl group melodrama of earlier records, replacing it with naked songs drenched in surreal joy, swimming pools with lightbulbs broken at the bottom, the end of the world in two lovers wrapped around each other on a rainy afternoon, houses made of books written by birds, all on fire.
