iTunes Review

If you appreciate the sophisticated retro-cool of artists like Raphael Saadiq and Nick Waterhouse—and the darker, dirtier style of The Black Keys—you'll likely soon be scuffing up the dance floor with Seattle's Pickwick. The group has finally issued a debut album flavored with all manner of R&B and soul, as well as scores of unknown '60s garage rock heroes. Recorded by the band in a living room, the tones are warm and appropriately fuzzy, with reverb bouncing off every element and a Rhodes piano bubbling at the core of some of the liveliest, most danceable tunes ("The Round," "The Shadow"). Conjuring styles from smooth and silky classics like early Motown and Smokey Robinson, '50s doo-wop, and '70s soul-pop, Pickwick—and especially talented vocalist Galen Disston—can effortlessly spin out a seductive, slinky tune like "Hacienda Motel" or "Lady Luck" (featuring Sharon Van Etten). Then it cranks up the garage vibe to the gritty-plus level without missing a beat ("Window Sill"). Tunes like the soulful "Well Well" and "Halls of Columbia" blend a contemporary indie sensibility with a number of vintage elements, resulting in an impressive cocktail of then and now. 

Customer Reviews

Listen only if you like real music from genuine musicians.

Have been listening to these guys for awhile online. KEXP radio online has some performances, some SXSW videos, an unplugged video recording called the Doe Bay sessions, and most importantly an impromptu acapella performance at the Suzzallo Reading Room. Check all of these out online to really get a feel for the unmatched talent of this group.

On to the album...

I will keep it short. It is rare thing to hear passion in music nowadays. This album brings passion, exceptional talent, and freshness to the contemporary landscape of musical mediocrity.

Do the right thing, check out their online videos, be blown away, download their album, tell your friends, and be a musical maven for once.

Love at first listen

If you like the Black Keys, you will like this band.

Fun Album with a Fresh New Sound

Energy this band posses is unstoppable! If you ever have the chance, go see them live - it is worth it.

My one complaint, the sound quality on this album is not great, and needs the urgent attention of a mastering engineer. There is a lack of body in the sound, sort of like what you hear on apple's headphones.
