Night Driving in Small Towns “Serial Killer”

May 13, 2010

Yeah, this is my kind of record. It’s an upbeat Azure Ray-sounding thing, only the other woman is a guy. “February,” a great title for the second track, is the first track, and it has a beautiful combination of guitar and synths to get the job done. “Barstool” is a dead ringer for something Rilo Kiley would do, and I bet they hear this all the time. Maybe the lead singer was in a movie as a teenager about a new game for the Sega Master System.
“Come & Tell Me” has a light layer of syrup, just enough to make this ballad taste better while letting diabetics partake as well. Talk about being sensitive to today’s youth! And that’s what the band is going for here. This is what the kids like. Sure they may remind you of acts from the past decade, and sure some of the chords remind you of other songs (“Get Free” vs. “All Apologies” by Nirvana), but there is just enough of an adaptation that keeps the sound new and fresh. This album is as much a breakthrough as Damone’s “From the Attic.” It’s about making the right record at the right time, and Night Driving in Small Towns have done it.
“All Together Now” puts it all together. This whole record fucking rules. If this does not end up in my top 5 for 2010 then this is going to be one hell of a year for rock music.
