Oh No, Theodore (Self-title Review)

Oh No, Theodore is fairly a new band.
They hail from Fredericton, New Brunswick.
They are a big band similar to the likes of Hey Rosetta! and Gramercy Riffs.
Don’t forget with an added of that East Coast music scene sound.
The band just released their self-titled album.

Here is some info on Oh No, Theodore which they emailed to me.
The band is a high energy and hard working seven piece miniature orchestra comprised of:

  • Guitarists
  • Cellist
  • Violinist
  • Pianist
  • Bassist
  • Drummer

Which makes for an intense and unforgettable live act.
Since having formed in May of 2010, Oh No, Theodore! has been nominated as a Galaxie Rising Star at the Harvest Jazz and Blues music festival which takes place in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
The competition is open yearly to bands across Atlantic Canada and Oh No, Theodore! was chosen as a top five finalist, and finished runner up after their four song set.
As well, the band has played The Sunseeker Ball music festival, sharing the stage with such eye opening acts as The Olympic Symphonium, and Joel Plaskett.
Oh No, Theodore! Secured a stage as an opening act at POP Montreal 2010, are in line to be playing this years In The Dead of Winter festival in Halifax Nova Scotia.

The album is filled with great indie alt-folk-pop-rock tunes.
Its like a mix of Ohbijou and Hey Rosetta! together.
Lots of great rocking tracks like Fit For Your Toes and Rough Thighs.
There is great intense emotion in the track Theodore The Monster.
A personal song in Meth AM about battling drugs.
Another about ending your life in “If I Were To Die Today”.
Jeremy McLaughlin is the mastermind of the band’s songwriting and singing.

Overall its a great album and there is alot of emotions put onto it.
Check out the video for “Fit For Your Toes”

I’d give this album 8/10.
