THE FIVE AMERICANS: Western Union LP (gold vinyl)
All analog, Abnak gold vinyl!
While overshadowed by its euphonic earworm, this is a remarkably deep & diverse album. With saccharin saturated jangly pop that verges on bubblegum (“If I Could”), infectious Vox organ propelled grooves (“Sound Of Love”), fuzz-driven garage (“Reality”) and the splendid & inventive sonic atlas “Big Cities”! Come for the single, stay for the album!
