Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
This band is a little bit of a mystery for me. The envelope came from Glasgow, but there was no return address on it. They wrote a nice note but didn’t sign it and there’s no contact info. I can’t even find a website for them.(I did find a MySpace page later…)
OK so to the music. It’s kinda 80s (as so much new stuff is these days) and it’s really fun.
The title song is really party-friendly. It’s very catchy. It makes me want to see them live.
He’s Got that Bryan Ferry Look is catchy and really sounds like a throwback.
Life’s a Cow is cool too. They made good use of the synth.
Greatest Living Actress is really 80s girl band sound and probably my favorite track.
The more I hear this the more I like it. It’s super fun and makes me want to move. Very well constructed songs that will keep you moving and happy.
This is definitely a party CD. It doesn’t sound the best when it’s on low, it sounds messy and static-y but it sounds great loud.
