While the title is a nod to modern life, the phrasing, the tech, the search for understanding, what you’ll ultimately find within is a country-rock, jazz-piano-soaked classic – an explosion of organic instrumentation, high energy and nostalgia; enough so to take you way back to bar fights and big bands.
A short collection of covers such as this really reinforces the fact that Andrew Farstar is easily the right choice for anyone looking for a singer with a genuine and deep-running passion for performance and music; regardless of genre or era or style.
The whole thing begins to feel like a circus or carnival-style song – immense energy and multiple layers of colour, but an underlying concept that leans a little more towards depth of thought and even darkness.
Doug Ferony and his big-band sound are one of a kind at present, and this single is the perfect starting point for those who are new to his music or who are seeking out that authentic, historically rooted yet fresh and colourful jazz and swing aura.
KC Sisters harmonize beautifully on this refreshing take on The Marvelettes 1960’s classic Please Mr. Postman. It’s a pleasure to hear this song again after so long, especially when it’s been given such a light and lovely makeover.
Where Michael Bublé has quite famously re-delivered this genre to the masses in recent years, he did so with a certain softness – Doug Ferony offers it up with weight and a seductively raspy finish.
Fusing elements of swing & jazz with those that are a little funkier or even rock inspired, LoungeZotica 3000 ignite a fresh love for instrumental music with their own clearly passionate, worthy presentations.
This fusion of yesteryear and today works in a refreshingly honest and endearing manner. The song is incredibly addictive and an easy joy to have pop up within any modern playlist.
It’s infectious to hear two guitars & bass playing the same thing that a drummer in a dance band would normally play. It’s also really exciting to be playing jazz & have folks dance to it.
The rhythm & ongoing melody surround you quite hypnotically, closing you off to the noise of the outside world, making the experience about the here & now.
Full & vibrant soundscapes, instrumentally loaded & emotionally joyful, featuring some notably reflective lyrics about life & love.
A strong introduction to the Chicago based singer & songwriter. The more you listen, the more the melody, lyrics & energy imprint their good vibes on you.
