Speed Queen Mystery Date
Speed Queen Mystery Date Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $12.00
Artist: Dave Birk
A very impressive debut from Minneapolis-based pop guy! "An eclectic collection of perfectly crafted pop songs with a bit of New Wave rock edge. The ironic lyrics, catchy melodies, and hilarious stories are steadily present from beginning to end. Birk's songs are melodically infectious and immediately engaging on the surface and lyrically smart, sensitive, insightful, provocative and often sad and/or cynical at their heart. The on-the-surface simplicity of the songs, coupled with sincere yet witty lyrics prove to be a can’t-miss formula." - Max Humphries There's a lot of bouncy melodious fun right from the opening notes of opener 'Hey Jody.' Influences are squarely in the Gin Blossoms meets Fountains of Wayne arena. With earnest vocals, the early gem is 'Roller Coaster of Love, Hate and Tenderness' with a wicked guitar solo during the break, and lyrics about 'the never-ending test' of romance. It kinda jumps into faux funk with 'Love and Devotion,' and then a touching slow ballad 'My Sleeping Beauty.' But then we enter FOW-land with the title track and 'All Things Retro' with a ton of pop culture references. The remaining tracks just as fresh, especially 'Country Music 101' with a dead-on instruction of how to write a hit country song. A great debut!" - Powerpopaholic.com Very promising indeed! EXCELLENT!!!
