Sweet Things- In Borrowed Shoes, On Borrowed Time LP.  Holy crap! After waiting four years for New York's Sweet Things to put out a full-length debut, I expected a really great album. But I don't know if I was quite anticipating this!  ‘In Borrowed Shoes, On Borrowed Time’ absolutely blew me away upon first listen and has only gotten better with subsequent plays. Ladies and gentlemen, The Sweet Things have made themselves a goddamn masterpiece!  Spiritually, you could say ‘In Borrowed Shoes’ is The Sweet Things' ‘Exile On Main St’. It runs the stylistic gamut from trashy rock n' roll to blues to country to soulful ballads - striking a perfect balance between Saturday night debauchery and Sunday morning regret. The band really pulled out all of the stops to make this a grand-sounding affair. Session players include Rob Clores (Black Crowes, Jesse Malin) on piano and keyboards, members of the Uptown Horns (James Brown, Rolling Stones) on horns and sax, Brian Hurd (Daddy Long Legs) on harmonica, and Liza Colby & Alejandro Escovedo on backing vocals. Yet the heart and soul of this album is an amazing set of songs and tremendous performances by the by the band members themselves including Dave Tierney on vocals and guitar.  Tierney, in my book, is one of the finest singers in rock n' roll today. Much of the ragged, boozy spirit of the band's music emanates from his raspy voice. And at an even deeper level, his vocals are full of heart and soul, a unique characteristic that you rarely find today.  Certainly this album raises a bottle to '70s Stones, the Black Crowes and Johnny Thunders, but The Sweet Things definitely have their own sound going and do it better than most.  Recommended.

The Streetwalkin' Cheetahs- One More Drink LP ~RAINBOW SPLATTER SPECIAL EDITION LIMITED TO 100!

Los Angeles' the Streetwalkin' Cheetahs spew a raw, undistilled slab of sweet ‘n nasty sonic tonic on their 7th studio album 'One More Drink'. The Cheetahs reignite the raw Detroit sounds of the the Stooges and fellow down under countrymen Radio Birdman blasting through 11 red-hot tracks of over-amplified nihilism showing even further dexterity in the world of thick riffs and song writing versatility. ‘One More Drink’ sounds like the good kind of mid 70’s pre-punk Riff 'n Roll record hopped-up on a heavy dose of classic 80's, white lightnin’ radio Rock. They mix an absolutely perfect Rock 'n Roll cocktail here...
