From the maniacal mind of musical mental-case Ginger Wildheart, Hey! Hello! Sees him collaborating with New York singer Victoria Liedtke in the creation of a feel-good rock ‘n’ roll romp. Wildheart plays every instrument on this album, and shows his ability to manage multiple layers of instrumental co-ordination, creating a cohesive sound throughout the album’s runtime. Bouncy, driven and upbeat, Liedtke’s cheeky singing style gives the record an attitude that somehow manages to be both high octane and suitably chill. It’s perfect for partying the night away, or reclining in a sun chair with an ice cold drink, though Ginger’s occasionally sinister lyrics give off a whiff that there might be some darker meaning lurking beneath some of these seemingly innocent beach party anthems. A fun listen from start to finish, Hey! Hello! is a good laugh that hits the spot in just the right way.
