LO MODA: Gospel Storefront: CD

Mar 14, 2007

Gospel Storefront manages to resuscitate a fresh take on psychedelic rock with viola hooks, slow handclaps, and the mantra-lyrics. Deadpan vocals spew, “New York is eating its tail” and “your beat is too complicated” out of front man Peter Quinn. It sounds like a disfigured, mutant Jonathan Richman is being backed by pretty girls singing backup and pounding their instruments in perfect, simple rhythms. It isn’t party music and it isn’t fun, but the malevolent, dry delivery of Gospel Storefront is pretty amazing.  –bree (Creative Capitalism)
