King Missile‘s John S. Hall is a walking compendium of poetry-scene cliches-dorky guy in funny hat reciting overly wordy, childlike puns and diary entries about big-city ironies. Catch is, he has a fantastic band that matches him. On ”Open Up,” guitarist Dave Rick and keyboardist Chris Xefos craft such a comfy pop moment that Hall even relaxes enough to croon.
