Despite the band’s Midwestern moniker, You, Me & Iowa hail from Los Angeles and sound just like your typical sunny California pop band -- in a good way. This is guitar/keyboard based rock with sweet harmonies, catchy melodies, spirited percussion, and slightly psychedelic leanings. The disc is just a short eight songs long, but each track bristles with sonic freshness and seems complete in itself. It’s not completely clear what the tunes are about (sample lyric: “Mama’s cookin’ in the kitchen and it sure smells great / Daddy’s locked up in the attic so he’s gonna be late”) although each word is carefully articulated, but some sort of suburban surrealism comes through loud and clear. You, Me & Iowa create a positive vibe and never let the energy flag.
