Gringo Star “Count Yer Lucky Stars”

Their record “All Yall” was one of the first I reviewed for KSCU. Now they continue with crazy variations on the second person, using one of my favorite grammatical crutches, “yer.”
“Shadow” gets the album off to a good start. This band continues to crank out the cheerful power pop that’s expected. And I get all Frampton when I listen to “Come Alive.” This track is well put together, right down to the bridge.
The classic love song about a special lady is “Jessica” in this case. It reminds me of the Monkees. “Make You Mine” also has a ’60s sound reverberating, but the backing vocals put this one over the top. It’s got it all.
