Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

Well, it’s about time! A record that is exactly what I expect (or hope) it will be after having seen the artwork. When I saw the cover art the first thing I thought of is Mary Tyler Moore. 60s fun. And that’s just what I got.

The Red Button reminds me a lot of a favorite local band here in Minneapolis called The Beatifics. And I dig it.

The guitars are jangly, the vocals are energetic with a British twist and songwriting is perfectly fun pop.

“Ooh Girl” has a great orchestral intro, and then it’s right back to fun pop.

This is going to me a summer soundtrack record for me I’m sure of it.
