Today's feature was actually inspired/recommended by Greta Salpeter from The Hush Sound, that tweeted that Fun's debut album was currently her favorite album. She was right, Fun's debut album "Aim and Ignite" is a lot of fun, that will remind you of summer and get you through the upcoming winter months. Fun is what happens when three extraordinarily talented musicians come together to create something altogether new and wonderful. Nate Ruess, late of The Format, has teamed up with ex-Anathallo multi-instrumentalist Andrew Dost and Steel Train’s Jack Antonoff, resulting in their ingenious debut, “Aim and Ignite.” The trio melds a stunning array of diverse inspirations – spanning Broadway to The Beach Boys, “Nillson Schmilsson” to “Pinkterton” – into an irresistible collection of freewheeling pop songcraft. Songs like “Benson Hedges” and “All The Pretty Girls” are fit to burst with richly prolix lyricism and intricate melodic twists and turns, which provide plenty of room for Ruess’ distinctive vocals to soar. With “Aim and Ignite,” Fun have crafted something special indeed, a contemporary rethinking of classic 70s pop, where ornate arrangements and inspired orchestrations meet present-day rock ‘n’ roll.
