White Flight - White Flight

Oceanographer's Choice? Yes - A+

Most people haven't heard of White Flight. What they're missing is the solo project of Justin Roelofs, who you may know as a member of the now defunct ban The Anniversary. And let me tell you, it's a terrific album. The album is a complete, beautiful work of art. The best way I can describe it is as a collage of poppy sounds and hooks. Sometimes it's electronic, sometimes acoustic, but it all flows so well together. And over all of this you have some great lyrics and vocals. It really creates this complete experience that just sucks you in for the length of the album. I've heard a rumor that the album was inspired by Roelofs trip to South America where he experimented with a lot of local psychedelics. This would definitely explain quite a bit, as the album is really a strange album. And not everyone will like it because it's so strange. But if you give it a listen, you might come it enjoy it as much as I have. Bellow I have one of the songs so you can give it a listen and see for yourself.

If you really like what you hear, the album's out on Range Life Records, a label that supports local musicians in Lawrence, Kansas. Again, check out the album, even though it can be weird, you just might enjoy it as much as I do. And Remember we here at Oceanographer's Choice love supporting local and regional musicians, and would love it if you did too. Peace.
