"Such A Thrill" (2013)
Who says you can't revisit the past?
Those warm fuzzy classic power pop feelings are just a CD spin away with the force of nature that calls itself "The Bottle Kids". Recycling, or should I say "re-purposing", the essence of musical idols like Harrison, Badfinger, Matthew Sweet, Jellyfish, The Hollies, The Who, and even The Beatles to name just a few ... singer/songwriter/one-man-band Eric Blakley throws it all against the pop/rock wall of sound and surprise! Everything sticks! In your head for days! Ear-worms abound!
And you know how I love a intelligent lyric - Anybody who can work Kerouac and Hemingway into a line is Pulitzer material in my book!
Who says you can't take a look back? Not I!
Here's the plan: Grab a copy of The Bottle Kids CD ... insert in deck ... sit back and feel the unstoppable grin spread across your face.
The CD is "Such A Thrill" on so many levels - Give it a listen and I'm positive you'll agree!
