A really lovely listen, perfect for this sunny Saturday morning.
The influences are clear enough (Seeds, Love, Stones, 13th Floor, generous dollops of Beach Boys, Standells, etc.) so no real sonic surprises as such, and I can't really add anything meaningful to Mike's stellar review so I ain't gonna try, but suffice to say that this is beautifully crafted stuff.
Fuck, these lads really know how to open a song - the hooks are sweet from first bars onwards. With apols to the vinyl types there's fun to be had simply skipping from one song to the next.
Time for another listen before the missus gets up? I reckon so...
10/10 coffin dodger Customer review, 27th March 2014
"Right dudes, (they're of the Michigan persuasion) we need a lead guitar sound so piercingly sharp that it'll force the wax out of unkempt old ears." Yup, they do that. "And guys, a vocal mix that separates from the backing mix like drops of lemon juice in a jug of cream." And that. " And hey, can we craft a range of three minute homages to the great and good of the sixties but keeping them as short and fresh as daisies in a jam jar plucked from summer's lawns"" OK people: tick, tick and tick. "And finally, bro., can we do at just one tight looped harmony reprise that even the Wilson brothers would have been proud to produce...just as a laugh, y' know, but in a good way?" And someone else must have replied "Sure can dude, as long as you let me get my Doors 'walk on thru' impression in on another track somewhere." And surely another must have raised the subject of tambourines as a percussive metaphor... And finally a plea from me, the dodger. Buy it on vinyl even if you don't own a turntable yet...cos this baby's well a keeper.
