Overview

Life Just Got Sweeter is something of a retro take on Hawaiian music. The Hula Honeys themselves are children of the last territorial generation (not long before Hawaii became a state), and had musical livelihoods of one form or another (Robyn Kneubuhl is actually the daughter of songstress Emma Veary). Here, the songs are largely from the classic Hapa Haole repertoire, with a couple ukuleles, a bass, and some soft female vocals over the top. This is classic tourist music in all its glory. The house bands at hotels and cafes over the early years of Hawaiian tourism were the masters of this form, and the Hula Honeys are simply continuing the tradition. Don't pick it up looking for contemporary stylings in Hawaiian music, certainly, but do give it a listen if the classic days are the desired timeframe, but the record store is out of all the Alfred Apaka albums.
