“What a Shame”

Posted by purplemary54 on May 4, 2014

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.

    They are that perfect mix of British Invasion with a little 70’s power pop added for just a little more sweetness. I gonna have to hear more from these guys, Thanks.
