"Armed with the psalms of David, an acoustic guitar, and the electronic Omnichord, Half-Handed Cloud assails nineteen new pop songs outside Eden's gates on Halos & Lassos, the latest album on Asthmatic Kitty Records. With hints of fitness music and video game soundtracks, Halos & Lassos tromps through 19 songs like a mostly-sunny afternoon in Berkeley, California-home of bandleader John Ringhofer. With the modal purity of Moondog, symphonic elements of Gershwin's 'Rhapsody in Blue,' and the ancient art of punning, the album boasts pop melodies arranged around the ambidextrous Omnichord -- a vintage '80s kidney-shaped electronic auto-harp/drum machine/synthesizer."
