I feel like I've been posting a lot of...gentler...music on the blog than I have in the past. I'm trying to find more of a balance, and "Six String All to My Heart," the lead single off of Purple Hill's latest album, hits that sweet spot. An ode to rock'n'roll sung with manic intensity and power pop sensibility, how could I resist?
In case the album title wasn't a tip-off, Top 40 is a whole mess of fun. Owen Marchildon giddily careens from 60s crooning to garage rock pining to punk rock, loogie-hocking, roars. The band's sweat and fury practically oozes through your speakers. Top 40 Radio Dream is nothing if not a celebration of the strange cultural moment of rock music.
