Fans of the Brian Setzer Orchestra will not be disappointed by this latest album, a soundtrack to a film that doesn't exist. It's what Setzer imagines might be the appropriate accompaniment to a throwback noir film, including blues, swing, and jazz tunes that feel like they could be classics. It's a fun exploration that provides plenty of opportunity for Setzer to show off his virtuosic guitar chops.
This album is full of fun, upbeat songs that feature the versatile vocals of lead singer Shingai Shoniwa. She seems completely comfortable with styles from disco to 60s soul to jazz, all of which are reflected in the pop songs on this album. Perfect for bopping around the house or around town, these happy songs will keep a spring in your step.
What more perfect name for a punk rock band for kids could there be than the Boogers? This album is loaded with high-energy Ramones-style punk that is completely appropriate for all ages. From new takes on old standbys (Bah Bah Black Sheep, The Wheels on the Bus) to originals, this album is raucous and irreverent, and a real treat for parents and kids alike.
