Oberhofer (Tacoma/Brooklyn)

MySpace page

From Pitchfork.com: Brad Oberhofer, frontman of the indie-rock outfit Oberhofer, is just 19 years old, and on "Awy Frm U", he exhibits a pretty good understanding of the duality of rejection. He seems to understand how it both hurts and provides a fresh start. "You're pushing me away from you/ And there's nothing I can do", he wails, but instead of a second chance, he's just looking for a chance to get it right. "I know what I'll do/ I'm gonna fix/ So I can get out of this mess", he promises, right after turning the tables on whoever's been telling him to fuck off: "I can't fight all of your battles for you". There's nervousness in his voice--bolstered by ramshackle guitars and a sugar-rushed drum beat that build to an inescapably joyous climax--but instead of conveying dread, Oberhofer sounds like he's expressing the kind of happy, life-affirming jitters you get when waiting on line for a roller coaster, or when you win concert tickets on the radio.
