iTunes Review

While The Postelles are often compared to their alt-rock contemporaries, the band's brand of power pop hails from the '70s, when it was common for groups to write songs with obvious hooks and harmonies. Where some modern bands like The Strokes (whose Albert Hammond produced The Postelles' debut album) value quirkiness and herky-jerky rhythms above all else, The Postelles love the flow of a great tune. Songs like "Caught by Surprise," "Oh My Luck," and "Parallel Love" don't fritter with complicated arrangements or too-clever productions; they simply let the lyrics tell the story and let the band do what's necessary. Guest Alex Winston adds her falsetto to "Pretend It's Love," where the man-woman battle is in full effect. The reverb glaze on "Sweet Water" adds a contemporary touch. "Running Red Lights" shoves the tight rhythm guitars right up front for great effect. This is a New York City band worthy of its town.
