Lottery (UHF)

By: Alex Steininger

It's been awhile since I've heard a good knock off of The Who and The Jam, but UHF delivers one of the year's best mod-rocker-pop records. Filled with anthems and hooks galore, Lottery is an unassuming album that, at first glance, looks like its going to be nothing. Heck, I've had this sitting on my desk for months and months. The artwork was nothing fancy (a red gumball machine filled with gadgets) and overall it just didn't look that appealing to me. But, like the girl in school that was ugly until high school and then became your wet dream, UHF's lousy packaging becomes nothing more than a passing thought once you put the album in.

Solid vocal performances and sweet, simmering guitars layered with steady bass and slippery drum beats, all brought together with sunlit organs, UHF's focus is classic mod rock with a dose of today's finest indie. And, what an amazing combination. Not to mention they do it so sincerely and valid, you can't help but fall in love. I'll give this album an A.
