southcoast247.com review of "Vaguest Vacation"

Domer - Vaguest Vacation Review By Matt Conley, southcoast247.com National Correspondent

Domer - Vaguest Vacation Combining bumping tempos with an array of vocal styles, Domer's Vaguest Vacation delivers a wide variety of sounds that drift between alternative rock and electronic and many other genres. From track to track you really never know what to expect, which becomes the mystery of this interesting album. One moment you could be relaxing to the cool vibes of "What We're Gonna Do" and the next you could be tempted to move to the hip-hop-inspired "Get Through This."

Max Wax - May 2007

When Domer performed Feb. 24 with The Last Hope at the King Club, he fit a growing trend in hip-hop music – one lonely MC and his choice of playback device, be it mini disc, CD player, iPod or robotic DJ. Although the show was entertaining and his beats came through the house system with authority, Domer told Maximum Ink he has bigger plans.

“I’m working now on putting something together with a guy on a laptop and a live drum, bass and guitar combo,” he said. “The experience of seeing a band is so much more visual and direct than just seeing one MC and a DJ.”

Domer’s debut album, Work With Me, out April 30 on Skipping Beats, is both a testament to his struggle working an office job while completing the album and a message to open your mind to a different kind of music.

Work With Me“It's me doing my thing and doing what I like to do,” Domer said. “It's a message to the listener to just go with me on this. Don't worry about what you think hip-hop is or what music is, just check it out.”

The product of Reason, Ableton Live and Domer’s imagination, Work With Me fuses electronica, hip-hop and a twangy style of rapping and singing into songs of social commentary with blatantly troubling thoughts like, “I’m half-blind drunk so I’m rolling the dice / playing the role of the nice guy, hoping there’s no rolls on her sides,” on “Character.” You can catch Domer on a national tour with The Metermaids begining in September.

"Sharing a Brooklyn lilt with Aesop Rock and an experimental approach to production and songwriting referencing Daedelus and spiteful indie-electro smartass Her Space Holiday, Domer has been dug outta deepest NYC by Welsh label Skipping Beats. International debut 'Work With Me' is a patchwork of east coast word skills and off-kilter tempos befitting a man with the insight to set up a website selling battle raps as ring tones. Check it".

Amazon.com listener review

I'm a fan of all musical genres, but none more so than Hip Hop. This album does not disappoint. Great beats, excellent rhymes. Some smart, reflective lyrics, but also some jamming party tracks. Influences from all over hip hop, rock, jazz, and the avant garde. Domer is the genius the music world has been waiting for. Dig it.

This is an ill CD.

Smart lyrics, ill beats, this cd has it all. No need to skip any tracks, each gives something new to the cd. Do not be surprised to see Domer all around real soon. Domer is for all those with a true love for hip-hop. Five stars without a doubt.

Clouds and Candy review Work With Me!!

"Finding a balance between melancholy growls and joyful indifference, Domer walks you through the stress and struggle of yet another city day on, Work With Me. Playful and dark in the same breath, "Whistler" is a jaunty depressives walk through the park, and "Tacky Shoes" nearly begs for a euro-house remix. With a truly original approach to beat making, never fully existing within a single genre, Domer stretches expectations beyond the 16 bars or verse-chorus-verse cubicles, into the land of the independent musical contractor."
