Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…
3 July 2020
Who: The musical moniker of a singer/songwriter
called Kelly, living somewhere in sunny California
Pick: RAINBOW RECORDS – a highlight from his 2019 album ‘Collier Canyon’ – a song about remembering the mixtapes and record stores of his suburban youth: “I pull out
your old Maxell tapes and play some radio songs… I remember you in ’84 knocking it around
to Purple Rain in the record store”.
Score: A glorious guitar pop humdinger getting your aural attention from the kick-off with a repetitive riff sticking as first-class glue. Inflammable passion, scintillating ardency, and vehement fervor. Big tune, big sentiments and a big voice reminding me of Greg Dulli‘s imposing vocals at times. Trust me, a solid gold sonic doozy still playing in your head
long after you had a few spins.
If you’re still in love with those good old music cassettes you’ll certainly dig this video clip…
