Think Quick - The John Hughes Demo
Think Quick is offering his new 30-song demo album for a free download. While it's almost impossible to listen to it and not make a comparison to The Postal Service, it's unique enough not to be called a direct ripoff. Songs like "congratulations you have been reflected to receive two free ipod nanos" and covers of huge hits like "Hollaback Girl" and "Better Off Alone" are clear evidence he's not afraid to show a sense of humor - it's a lot less introspective than similar bands, and a lot more fun to listen to. I mean come on, the album's called The John Hughes Demo. While 30 songs can be a bit much, and there's a lot of unpolished raw demo tracks, it's still a fun set of songs that shows a lot of promise. He's definitely someone to watch for future releases.
