NEW WRITE UP - by SOUND OF CONFUSION
Starting the monday off right with some love from the UK.
Check out another great write up by KevW over at The Sound of Confusion
Lead single 'Virginia Law' is a prime example of they genre they've made for themselves. "Gothic cantina" may be difficult to envisage by name alone, but if you take raw garage rock 'n' roll, throw in a little blues and a punky edge then that sums things up pretty well. Despite the fact tat there are only two of them, there's not much room to move on 'Virginia Law', as it's crammed with fervently strummed electric guitar, a surging beat, handclaps and even a touch of harmonica. The Echo And The Sound may not be the first to attempt this kind of thing, but they still manage to keep it sounding fresh and exciting.
