“From our reviewer Archie, a sum-up of Corinne Callen & Gulf of Michigan at the Delancey last week. The October 21st performance was a part of CMJ’s week of musical mayhem. Corinne Callen made a special CMJ appearance Wednesday night at the Delancey, moonlighting from NYC pop-punk mavens “Le Mood,” with whom she normally appears. With her sweet country-pop style, sunny blond tresses, and laid back stage presence, Callen evoked the specter of the lovelorn singer-songwriters who populated Los Angeles in the 1970s. Her lovely vocal lines drew on classic melodic tropes that proved none the worse for wear in her capable hands. While she didn’t quite transform the Delancey into the Troubador, she still delivered a poignant taste of sun-bleached wistfulness to the Lower East Side this night.”

"Groovy guitars and beachy harmonies from cousins Marco Argiro and Corinne Callen work to superb succession with the aid of a fierce rhythm section on Synaesthesia from NYC band, The Mood."
“The Mood is a New York City-based power-pop band that knows its way around a melodic hook. Synesthaesia is a six-track EP that shows off the band’s knack for catchy vocal harmonies and bright, bouncy songs. The irresistible romantic pop of “Eskimo Scientist” is the best song here, highlighted by Marco Agiro’s lead vocals and Corinne Callen’s harmonies. The other five tracks each have their own strengths as well, particularly peppy opener “In the Forest”, with its lyrics about getting away from the city. The slightly darker “Quarter Century Kid” starts with moody synth effects but quickly changes into the EP’s most effective rocker. It’s a bit of a shame that the band’s name is so generic, because they’re very good at what they do. What they’re doing isn’t particularly unique, but there’s always room out there for more good songwriters. And with Synthaesthesia The Mood is off to a strong start.”
“BeatCrave brings you band, The Mood, as part of our Know Your NYC Bands series. Who says pop music is ruined? The Mood envelopes good sunshine (and some glockenspiel) in their retro-kissed sound as they also fuse it with familiarity for fans of The Kinks, OK Go, and Elvis Costello. Marco Argrio (vox/guitar), Corinne Callen (vox/glockenspiel/keys), Kenton Langstroth (guitar), Chris Bunatta (drums), and Brian Karp (bass) are all giving pop a better name as they embrace undeniably catchy melodies on top of rock and roll. After releasing their latest EP, Synaesthesia, on their own label, Outright Rock Records, and touring the UK, The Mood continues to brings the sound of summer all year round. So if the dreary winter has already gotten you down, I suggest you catch their show tonight at The Studio at Webster Hall (10:00 pm). It’ll be one big party for two reasons: It’s Marco’s birthday celebration, and they play with The Asteroids Galaxy Tour!”
