NEW DUMB, THE: Let’s Get Lucky: CDEP

Nov 04, 2008

This reminds me a lot of The Pixies circa Surfer Rosa and Doolittle. Frank Black’s squeaks and yowls are mimicked and joined with bouncy pop/post punk melodies that make you want to sing along. The departure from this niche, “Dance Song,” uses a drum machine and a tight bass line that just might inspire you to get off your ass.  Recommended.
