Certain bands are able to combine a perfect mixture of emotion and talent in their music. Cincinnati's Pomegranates' most recent album Everybody, Come Outside! is a perfect example of such a combination taking place. Conceptually, the album loosely tells the story of a young boy who is abducted by a time-traveler while swimming across the ocean. The story, however, become secondary to the music itself, however. It is, for the most part, so infectuously joyful and optimistic it is difficult to not follow the music's advice and throw your computer through the window and get outside to adventure. The band combines the energy of pop with deep layers of atmosphere akin to early Modest Mouse and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.
