Straight Crazy is a phenomenal collection of 4 of the very best songs from a band that is masterful at their craft. The Muddy Crows’ music and melodies have this almost effortless ability to appeal to fans of just about any genre – without pandering or sounding inauthentic. Not many other artists can claim that, and this is one of the things that make The Muddy Crows such a special band

Facing Dullness is perhaps the best new song I’ve heard so far this year. It takes a moment to really kick in, the overall sound is fairly familiar – warm and indie-pop-like in nature, but once you really hear it; you can’t un-hear it.

Boo Cat is alternative, for sure – appealing for its edgy weirdness & the way the music & the voices do whatever the hell they need to. At the same time, the melody is undoubtedly something of an ear-worm – I’d be surprised if anyone could walk away not humming at least one line from the song.

Less important than the genre these days is the songwriting and what you put into it – how much of yourself you allow the music to present, how well structured it is, how easily it connects and entertains or lets an audience escape. You get a good balance of all of this with Cleaned Out.

Junior’s single Love Is Gone is one that swiftly evolves from simple pop to outstanding soul-rock within a few short minutes. Where the verses have a certain delicacy about them, a quietness even, the hook pours through as this completely unexpected moment of brightness – a choir of voices, a multi-layered rock soundscape, and a wonderful reminder of acts such as Queen and Prince alike – a fine fusion of royalty.

The song utilises its upbeat rhythm & brightness to reinforce the very sentiment that it’s all about dancing – it’s all about having fun, spending time with those you hold close. We could all use a reminder of those things once in a while.
