PRIVATE DANCER: Alive In High Five: LP

Jul 14, 2011

Drunken, flailing bar rock from Minneapolis. Similar to the Mannequin Men or hometown heroes The Replacements. These guys know how to take rock’n’roll tropes and pump them through their own keg with no foam. Highlights include “Diane,” the best rock’n’roll song I’ve heard this year; “Weekend,” which is either about having to work all weekend while your friends party or about your job being to rock out and party on the weekend; and the heartfelt glam of “All Souls Eaters Day.” I just realized it’s nearly six pm, so I should experience no guilt as I open a beer and play this again.
