Big Crown (The Fields & The Expressions, The Shacks) release the debut LP by intriguing NYC group 79.5. While it’s in essence a party record, a lot of influences are torpedoed into Predictions. The minimally groovy rhythm section often resembles ESG, but there’s a girl-group vibe to some of the carefree melodies, while tunes like ‘Boy Don’t Be Afraid’ have a little Sade to them. Imagine a more streamlined version of The Go! Team. It’s good fun.
