6/10 Tom Customer review, 24th May 2018
Fresh on the heels of the surprise success of his second solo album Lapalco, Detroit singer songwriter Brendan Benson reconnected with his high school buddy Chris Plum to release the second Mood Elevator album.
Those expecting the delights of Lapalco's power-pop gems will be slightly disappointed by Married Alive. With most of the songwriting duties going to Chris Plum, it's an admiral effort with a few treats along the way (including the delightful back and forth of "Something I Need") but it's fair to say that Plum is a poor man's Brendan Benson. Worth a listen but unlikely to get a regular rotation.
7/10 Jack Customer review, 26th March 2016
My introduction to Mood Elevator was the excellent "Boycott" video that I saw on YouTube. I noticed Brendan Benson on guitar, and had to investigate further as Benson is one of my favourite artists. The songs here are very good. Mostly rocky stuff, interspersed with mellow numbers that build to a crescendo. My favourites are "Boycott" as I love the guitar riff, and "Anglophile" which gets really good as it progresses. Chris Plum's voice is not unlike Bensons. It's an octave lower, but fairly strong still.
