Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Liza Garelik and her band have been together while. Their second album is rich on great tunes and energy.

“Song about a Pidgeon” is a mid-paced rocker with a great lyric. Garelik clearly has a special voice and guitarist Ian Roure is very gifted.

“What I do for Payday” details the chores of working life. It’s also a catchy Pretenders-like tune that shows off the bands talents.

“Machine Gun Smith” was originally done by Katrina and the Waves and it’s a good choice of a cover.

“Clergy Man” is almost reggae in a Blondie kinda way.

This is a brilliant album and the band should be a treat live.
