The A-B Theory



Jesse Joseph Smith, a Texas musician and the man behind the music of The A-B Theory, is ready for you to embrace his mix of pop and electronica goodness. Of course he caught my attention by posting in the self-promotion forum, where he's found some positive responses from members. One listen to "One Night Waltz," a song which fits the mood of a somber ballroom scene, was enough to convince me to open my ears. For those who dig more of a hellogoodbye pop feel, adjust the handy MySpace music player to "Tell Me How Colorado Is," an ill-fated love story set to keyboards. Smith is currently offering his Illusions EP through his MySpace page for six dollars (including shipping), so if you like what you hear, pick up some new music and help a small band at the same time.

For Fans OfElectric President, hellogoodbye, PlayRadioPlay, The Postal Service, Styrofoam

"One Night Waltz" is good. I could see it being played in The Shining.

really enjoy this guy. He uses electronics really well and doesn't coat his vocals in a bunch of effects. If you like the postal service at all, you have to hear this. Great pick, Adrian.

He's from Dallas - we should go see him. Are you not in TX anymore?

I really like this guys stuff, the EP is honestly worth your 6 dollars.

also - this is pretty damn cool - a band i recorded is getting some notice on a website i have been checking daily since like 2001 (whenever brand new was the featured release, i joined the forum a couple years later)

anyways - check this dude out and support him - he is awesome and makes wonderful music
