Aloha, the most critically-acclaimed band in Polyvinyl's history, returns April 11th with Some Echoes, their fourth full-length and finest moment to date. Aloha loves a little bit of everything (60s orchestral pop, prog rock, 20th century composers, iconic songwriters), but they don't dabble here and there, they meld it all to make their own noise, a singular and unmistakable one. This is one album not to be missed. Hear for yourself what everyone has been raving about, you will not be disappointed.
