Pitchfork Review!

"Hello, Summer" gets a great review from Pitchfork!  Read it HERE

The album comes to feel something like Count Basie directing a big band dedicated to lost Roy Ayers compositions; it is highly, almost restrictively controlled, but nonetheless dedicated to the funk.

Rich with funky, danceable melodies balanced by disciplined musicianship, it’s a feel-good instrumental record par excellence.

For beatheads, Van Dyke’s Hello, Summer is easily his most compelling album since 2014’s Technicolor Hi-Fi, a cult favorite and spiritual ancestor to many of the lo-fi compositions that now circulate on YouTube. Composed and produced by Van Dyke, the new record is built on a series of melodic refrains that either grow or transform over the course of each track, undergirded by the artist’s alternately splashy and subtle percussive instincts.
