Some Echoes

Like a computer geek with a romantic streak, Ohio’s Aloha straddle the line between trad songcraft and proggy virtuosity. They’re a band for which Yes and Wings occupy equally esteemed positions. On the quartet’s fourth full-length, Some Echoes, McCartney’s influence takes hold, especially on spiritual dream-pop like ”Come Home” and the caressing ballad ”Ice Storming.” Tasteful, tuneful indie-pop is a crowded field these days, but Aloha’s embrace of unusual tricks — knotty discursive bridges and lots of marimbas — will have you at…aloha.
