Homunculus Words

Somewhat of a phenomenon on the East Coast and in the Midwest of the United States, Homunculus has a pop sound that is ultra-refined, like a fine wine. Musically, they incorporate a slight jam feel to their sound with a kick of lounge rock but mainly stick within a bizarre yet enjoyable mixture that combines elements of Weezer, Beach Boys and Ben Folds (especially via the disciplined '80s crooner vocals) that is solidly driven by an old-school piano sound. Accolades are in order for this album, and it is no wonder that they have been featured in various events such as the Horde tour (1998), VH1's Bands on the Run and frequent gigging at the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in Ohio.
