The Billy Dechand Band's Hocus Pocus is a quirky, psychedlic pop album with songs that span from dreamy, chipper, to Radiohead-esque longing, sometimes all in one song. It's sprinkled with lots of colors, strange instruments appear and disappear, like circus ghosts. The co-ed harmonies glisten, as does the violin lilt and fiddle, with a solid pop rhythm section that rocks, swings, or even makes you think! Billy Dechand's songwriting is outstanding as usual, with this quartet taking new musical ideas and presenting them in perfect form. Hocus Pocus grows on you the way classics do - it starts out great, and just gets better.
