When Lane Barrington joined Church (sorry, Hosannas, but it'll always be Church to me), his expressive drumming took the band to dynamic new heights. All the while Barrington maintained his own project, the Ocean Floor, which he is now pursuing exclusively along with Shannon Rose Steele. Tonight marks the release of Pop Quiz, the Ocean Floor's playful yet meticulously crafted full-length. On top of acoustic guitar and Barrington's marvelous percussion, the duo sprinkle in all kinds of counterpoints, including strings, horns, keys, winds, and more. Everything here is effervescent, pastel, heartwarming, and cute. And while the wildly orchestrated tracks on "Pop Quiz" shimmer and shift like dense constellations, live the duo figures to offer a more intimate, stripped-down approach. Nonetheless, Barrington and Steele have the talent to make the minimal every bit as sparkling. ANDREW R TONRY
