In Tristram Shandy, Laurence Sterne argued that a name was destiny — a theory that bodes ill for Michael Grubbs and his band, Wakey!Wakey! The title of the Brooklyn band's proper full-length debut, Almost Everything I Wish I'd Said the Last Time I Saw You..., devours alt-weekly word counts, just as it snarfs up a buffet of crisp piano ballads, brash musical theatrics, brooding politics and semi-realized indie-rock ambition. What Wakey!Wakey! lacks in focus it makes up for with Fray-esque string zing, dance-till-you-forget-you're-a-hipster rhythms, poignant harmonies and mostly unpretentious, from-the-heart-not-the-head lyrics. Wakey!Wakey! isn't the next big band on the horizon, but it might be the jolt romantic piano pop lovers need.
