Categorizing Charlemagne’s Big Thaw as light piano rock would barely do it justice. What it lacks in memorable choruses standard in that genre, it makes up for by transcending into a bevy of other musical fields. Outskirts of Radiant is a jazz infused ditty, apt to be heard in a smoky speak easy or New Orleans cabaret. While so many modern rock albums are overproduced and vocally centric, Colossal Yes bucks the trend, focusing instead on the purity of its instrumental contributions. Kushner’s piano overpowers his vocal performance, taking a hold of the melody. Kushner and company have managed to take elements of ’70s rock and modernize them. This is the perfect summer chill-out album that only leaves you wanting more. Similar Albums: Ben Folds Five – Whatever and Ever Amen Van Morrison – Moondance Spoon – Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. Listen Here.

Charlemagne (/ˈʃɑːrləmeɪn/) or Charles the Great (2 April 742 – 28 January 814), numbered Charles I, was king of the Franks from 768, king of the Lombards from 774, and emperor of the Romans from 800. During the Early Middle Ages, he united the majority of western and central Europe. He was the first recognised emperor to rule from western Europe since the fall of the Western Roman Empire three centuries earlier. The expanded Frankish state that Charlemagne founded is called the Carolingian Empire

On its second LP, Charlemagne's Big Thaw, Colossal Yes continues its retro-tinged, indie pop trajectory, carefully honing its tracks to fit into a more conventional three or four minute time frame, a change from the band's first LP, Acapulco Roughs. Though Colossal Yes has less of a psychedelic slant than Comets On Fire, it, too is rooted in the past, hearkening back to the days when a catchy piano melody took center stage instead of being overshadowed by guitar solos or ambient droning.

On Charlemagne's Big Thaw, Kushner sticks to piano and vocals, presenting a brand of pop that swings with a jazzy AM radio vibe. Kushner's latest continues the approach started on Colossal Yes' 2006 debut release, Acapulco Roughs, featuring songs that wouldn't be out of place echoing down the halls around hotel lounges.
