CMJ Preview: Blah Blah Blah – Why Am I The Only One Laughing?
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Thanks to DJ Synapse, I first caught ahold of the Chicago band Blah Blah Blah this week. Their combination of sultry melodies and old school flair caught my attention from the jump. With a name that suggests a left-over hipster group, Blah is quite the opposite. With their headlining track “Why Am I The Only One Laughing,” lead singer Solomon evokes a sound that is reminiscent of Morrissey or The Cure. And with production by Matt Walker (Smashing Pumpkins) the band, as the Chicago Examiner says reminds us of everything we forgot about rock music. (props DJ Synapse)
