REAL SINGING REAL INSTRUMENTS REAL GOOD
As we wade through the morass of modern music, only to discover the excessive use and abuse of Autotune, faux teen pop/rock fluff & the alarming escalation of "artists" lifting entire sections from classic old songs and laying new and inferior vocal melodies over them - it has become apparent that the most satisfying and creative work is now being released by unsigned independent artists. The Turnback is one such artist. After seeing the indie film "Drawing With Chalk" about a year or so ago at a film festival, I've been waiting (and hoping) for the release of the soundtrack. Finally it arrives and it does not dissappoint. Do you like melody? Check. Do you like thoughtful, intelligent lyrics? Check. Do you like inventive vocal harmonies (something that nobody seems to do anymore)? Check. Well, this album has all of it. The sound is bit retro in the best sense, borrowing from the 60's (like the 12 string guitar riffing in Beyond Belief & the funky bass in Someone Else's), the 70's (the Zeppelin meets Cheap Trick groove of Love Like Bombs) and psychedelia (Cellophane Sky) - yet the band manages to give each song a fresh, modern spin so that nothing sounds shamelessly retro. Well worth the ten bucks.
Excellent cd! Well put together. hints of Talking Heads, old REM and Buffalo Tom. Highly recommend adding this to your collection. Go see the film too. A great indie production.
Good music will always be good music (quote from movie)
I have to agree; pop fluff crap is pop fluff crap no matter how much money their marketing teams make. And, good music is good music. This is great and I am happy to support them and the movie, Drawing With Chalk. Not formula Hollywood crap with contrived neat bows to tie up the story. Life is messy; art is messy; these honor that philosophy.
