 Oberhofer is the project of Brad Oberhofer. All the way from Tacoma Washington to New York, this fellow has studied music composition at NYU.

His debut was in 2010 when he released the single o0o0o0o0o. His lyrics are playful. He has a sense of  lo-fi in his sound.

Time Capsules II came out March 21st, 2012
I personally really enjoy this album. I think the lyrics are simple, yet meaningful. I think Brad Oberhofer (who is only 21) has a great, unique voice, and writes very appealing rock/pop with a twist songs. His constant high voiced wailing on assorted vowels, usually the “oo” sound. In fact, there is a song on the album whose title is “ooOOo0oOOoo”.-eels & kittens


He's toured with Sleigh Bells, Neon Indian, Twin Sister, and Bear in Heaven. Finally, with a little help from producer Steve Lillywhite... he recorded his full-length debut Time Capsules II.

 Another great, fairly unknown indie band to come out of America (where do they all come from?), I’ve got to give a big ups to a man going by the name of Jonathan Frick for ‘finding’ them. The ‘band’ is really just a changing cast of good musicians revolving around the young genius Brad Oberhofer, who, as the name suggests, is the cornerstone of the whole shindig. The title isn’t lazy typing, bee tee dubs, Oberhofer’s just really into SMS lingo. Don’t let that put you off, though, cos its different, pretty fun, and definitely good.-Slow the Car Down

If you like The Shins or The Nothings, you might find a spot of this guy on your playlist.
