Camp Out “Closer”

May 24, 2010

I bet the bassist snuck into the recording studio when no one was looking, because the bass is turned up super-high on these tracks, but it works!
This record has a Portland/San Francisco sound, and it does not surprise me that they are in fact from the city by the bay. Minor bits of Glitter Mini 9, Ramona the Pest and even Sleater Kinney come together and give you some fun rock ‘n’ roll to listen to. “Make Myself Sick” is very simple musically, but it’s like a gin and tonic. Keep that Tom Collins mix and fancy glass away, please. I don’t need anything fancy to please my ears. I’d rather have something made right.
“Does It Hurt” touches on that retro sound that people seem to be enjoying these days. Having a synthesizer in your band will do that. It sounds fine. It would sound better at the Ivy Room in Albany. It kind of sounds like INXS, actually, with guitar straight out of All Girl Summer Fun Band.
“Bones” isn’t about the TV show or my ex-girlfriend’s cat, either, but it does have the same upbeat feeling as Sub Debs, which I can be happy about.
I’d like to suggest that when they play live that they face each other. I bet it would create a dynamic that would grab the audience’s attention, similar to what Shellshag does.
