There's a new iji LP in town and it's called 'Soft Approach'! It was recorded across two weeks in October of 2012 at The Crystal Palace in Santa Cruz, California. It features contributions from members of Santa Cruz band James Rabbit, as well as David Jaberi (Jaberi & Deutsch), Michelle Shofet (Glass Cake), and many others.
Zach Burba has harnessed the 80's soft pop vibe and added his own penchant for the absurd and beautiful. It's a funny album, a serious album, a dance album, a rock album. Zach always seems to create an album that's unique and true to himself.
My favorite moment is the flute solo on 'Picture of the Sun'.
Edition of 500 copies in full color jackets, black vinyl, and a digital download code. Pressed at Gotta Groove Records. Co-released with Seashoes (Zach Burba's label).
