Singles Bar: August 2010

We've listed singles/EPs/demos in order of star rating. Best first.

THE REVEILLONS Sighs (Dirty Water Records)

This two track wonder can only be described as the best of soul, funk and pop.

Opening track 'Sighs' deep, leading and purely harmonic bass lines drive these verses into one dancey beast of a chorus with James Brown reborn vocals reincarnates soul at its very best, just more lyrically simplistic.

Reminiscent of Rancid's early records and in the days of heavy organ pop tunes, 'Sighs' pays homage to the likes of The Beatles and Paul McCartney guitar hooks and melodies whilst lingering drum fills fit in nicely with the odd harmonic note being randomly placed to produce a bubbly and lively atmosphere.

Second track 'Ain't no Fool' has enough flower power and protest drive that it quite literally makes you want to pull out your placards and wear those water prints shirts your mother threw away once you left home, and yelling random rants about the government in the name of love.

The early punk drums fill opening (relatively similar to the opening of The Clash's 'I Fought the Law') swiftly builds up into an fragmentary portrait of the angst towards world leaders today whilst still kicking back far enough into the Old Skool, that you actually want to get off your backside and whip out a few scissor kicks for added effect. The perfect soundtrack for a summer evening, just with a bit more oomph. ****
