The Aluminum Group is an American pop band from Chicago, Illinois centered on brothers John and Frank Navin. The band has released seven albums on the Minty Fresh, Hefty, Wishing Tree, and P-Vine labels. The Navin brothers grew up in Detroit, moving to Chicago in 1979. In Chicago, they formed their first band in 1982, the hardcore punk band Women In Love. In 1985, they left the band, increasingly becoming interested in softer pop music. They formed a new performance art group together, Bleak House. Listen free to The Aluminum Group Happyness Tiny Decision, I Blow You Kisses and more. 10 tracks 38:00. Album 2001 10 Songs.

After their last album, Happyness marks a return to that classic Aluminum sound- lush melodies, witty lryics and understated production. While perhaps not as razor sharp production wise as Plano, this album has some of the band's best lyrics. It is not going to change the world, but is made me happy :- Read more. The Aluminum Group. Happyness, 2008. Tiny Decision, 03:52. I Blow You Kisses, 03:00. Now playing . Possibly Aluminum Group certainly strikes me as being capable of such pretension. Fortunately, however, the songs on Happyness are mainly just catchy, quirky pop tunes with some nicely oblique lyrics about love, friendship and heartache, all soothingly crooned by both brothers with a gentleness that belies the brutal truth-telling of their best moments. Like I said, it's hard to get excited about the Aluminum Group, but I can still easily recommend Happyness, with the appropriate amount of ironically cool detachment, to fans of lushly orchestrated pop and post-modern crooners like Eric Matthews and Belle & Sebastian.
