POP: 60's Pop, ROCK: 60's Rock
"Tom Hedrick is f***king weird, but I like him. He's got a classic sense of pop craftmanship, a multi-instrumentalists palate and a whimsically twisted vocabulary...(It's) like the Beach Boys and a horny robot collaborating on a television soundtrack..." - Shredding Paper
"Had his parents met sooner, this artist might have been a Beatle, Monkee or Beach Boy. He could have replaced Syd Barrett in Pink Floyd and no one would have noticed...Cheerful harmonies, blissful melodies and sugary arrangements abound on this quirky collection of novelties and curios...Hedrick's heartfelt tributes to his influences are obvious, which makes As If! all the more charming. If you appreciate Soupy Sales, Flo & Eddie and They Might Be Giants, Hedrick is your man. Poseurs be damned!" - Amplifier
"These are some super-duper quirky jams--- holy cow, this stuff is
hilarious. If I tried to go too in-depth with this you wouldn't believe.
This is funny---possibly part of the definition of funny! I think my
favorite song on here might be "James K. Polk," which is a completely hilarious jam about the 11th President of the U.S. ---- Hahahaha --- this is right up there with Wesley Willis as far as funniness goes!!!" - Invisible Youth
"Tom Hedrick's quirky little album is a '60s pop-influenced confection piled high with jokes upon jokes. It's geeky. It's clever. Bottom line, it's funny. Thankfully, it's much better than you'd expect it to be. Hedrick's grasp of straightforward '60s pop is firm and accomplished. " - Splendid E-Zine
"Hedrick's wonky, obsessive sound works simply because the guy is so damned earnest. He makes music this plastic-sounding because he likes it that way. And his enthusiasm rubbed off on me in a big way." - Aiding and Abetting
"With this independent label release, Hedrick will hopefully get the airplay he needs to break into the big time. In the meantime, go out and buy the cd. Your ears will thank you!" - K. Polanski, The Nu Review
"Though America's world was turned upside down a little over a year ago, Tom Hedrick harks back to that time when we were putting the bop in the "bop shoo bop shoo bop" and crying at our birthday parties. For Tom Hedrick's debut album, he may well have taken a hardy swig of an energy drink consisting of chunks of 1960's Top 40 radio, Kermit the Frog, They Might Be Giants and the Aquabats...Add in electric organs, accordions, horns, dadoodoo's, and aaawww's, and it is all you can do but play this album for your friends, perhaps while taking a road trip or maybe when things are just getting a bit too serious. With most songs being simple two-minute bursts of silliness, As If serves as a nice reminder that life isn't all that bad and that there is still plenty to
laugh about." - Performer https://www.tradebit.com
