by no means trapped there, this quintet's songs fuse grooving and
sophistication into a throughly modern sounding formation.
On their freshly
released CD, "Say You're A Scream" (on Kindercore Records)
they put forth a tight blend of yesteryear hip and now urgency. Just try and
stop shimmying to the sweeping rhythm of the way-cool title cut bet you
can't. Tracy Hatch's vocals have a graceful sheen and the guitar work of
Ryan Lewis and the mysteriously named Ice is throughly skillful. Hatch's
Farfisa playing adds a retro-colorful flourish to their tunes.
