iTunes Review

New York City’s Postelles draw loose comparisons to the Strokes due to their similar spirit and kinetic energy and the fact that Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr. was an early supporter and produced four tracks on this debut album. (The band produced the remaining tracks.) However, the Postelles have their own personality. They make the connection between ‘50s rock ‘n’ roll and the stripped-down flow of ‘70s new wave. Thrown together and you get infectious tunes such as “Sleep On the Dance Floor,” “123 Stop” and “Hey Little Sister” where dancing is permitted and toe-tapping is highly likely. The songs are a bit like Weezer without the overwhelming distortion. Singer Daniel Balk has a quirky delivery that makes him sound like he’s between accents and the backing vocals are free-spirited and promote the idea that music can be fun. Elements of the Go-Go’s, the Modern Lovers and Buddy Holly can be heard laced throughout.

With Mr. Used to Be... SCORE! I've been a fan since the beginning... keep rocking.

In 2007, the Postelles began...
