“What a Shame”

Happy Star Wars day, kiddies! May the 4th be with you!
I first wrote about the Strypes a little over a year ago, and I was pleased to see that they got a deal and have released their debut album. Sure, it happened a couple of months ago, but I can’t be expected to stay on top of everything.
These boys are already such assured performers, I’m not quite sure where they can go from here. The music is still a total throwback to the 60s, but who cares. They play with style and nerve. They’re still doing a pretty damn good imitation of the Stones, but I can also hear the influence of other British invasion acts like the Kinks. It really is a joy to watch them (Letterman certainly got a kick out of them). You can get their album for cheap from itunes, which I heartily recommend.
