O’s Notes: This band gets better with time and American/English blends so of their trademark sound with some English dance tracks. Greg Carmichael and Miles Gilderdale wrote the bulk of the music. Their double acoustic guitar groove reminds us of old school R&B, especially on hot tunes like “Say Yeah” where they take a page out of Ray Parker’s book. The pace slows a bit for “Trinity” with it’s subtle reggae beat. The title track also cooks among many. Pick up a copy for your commute. You’ll be glad you did.
