[GROOVES & JAMS] Not too long ago, a Portland dance-rock outfit by the name of Hockey played sold-out shows in big venues in Europe while receiving relatively little fanfare at home. The original quartet split a while back, the only remains being occasional radio spins of “Song Away,” from 2009’s Mind Chaos LP. With original frontman Ben Grubin at the helm once more, Hockey is back with a more stripped-down, laptop-based sound, and sans the distraction of big-label backing. The catchiness and synth-y grooves remain, but Hockey appears amid a slightly quieter, more reflective examination of pop. Newest release Wyeth Is only testifies to this.
