Elizabeth & the Catapult – Taller Children

Produced largely by Saddle Creek alumnus Mike Mogis — the one exception is the titular track, which was produced by Jim Eno of Spoon and the dubious-careered Jon Kaplan (who has produced such masterworks as … the Jonas Brothers!) — Taller Children is a solid pop record with a cheerful melodic bent taking the musical front seat in the recording, and the production supports that without becoming intrusive. Never does a song sound overproduced or forced, much to the album’s benefit.

Taller Children has tracks ranging from pure, innocent indie pop (”Momma’s Boy”) and seductive neo-jazz (”Right Next to You”) to a string-laden Leonard Cohen cover (”Everybody Knows”) and jazz-inflected bluegrass (”Complimentary Me”) — the diversity isn’t overwhelming, but it is refreshing, and it keeps the album from becoming yet another homogenous effort from a promising act.

This video is also quite amusing.

They remind me a little of the bird & the bee.
