Sonic Candy Soul
 
Sonic Candy Soul Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $19.00
Artist: The Electric Stars
 
 
Quantity:
 

From Manchester, England, The Electric Stars are a psych rock'n'roll group with slick guitar riffs and bold catchy lyrics embedded into each of their songs. Their musical reference points stretch from the 60's era to today, but sit most comfortably around the late 60's early 70's. They've chosen the perfect title for this, their 2012 debut album - there is power, sweetness and plenty of soul in every track. If you could imagine a super group created from Small Faces, T-Rex, Bowie, Stones, early Pink Floyd, New York Dolls, only better, then that is exactly what you have here. "Opening number '136' begins with a swirling enchantment of frontman Jason Edge's captivating vocals before bursting into a vibrant instrumentation reminiscent of 70's David Bowie. 'Between The Streets and the Stars' is a slicker, prowling number, that combines elements of punk with the steady hum of glam rock and 90's revival. The chorus is so catchy; you'll be singing along after an initial listen. 'I Want You' is a self-assured number leaving you fuelled with rock confidence and untouchable swagger. The stripped back Rolling Stones-esque vibes remain in under layers, evoking an excitement for how far the band can take their sound. Once again the psychedelic undertones are present. The edgier 'Who's Gonna Satisfy Me?' is a budding rock number which speeds and drops in all of the right places, combining explosive guitar solos with mellow bass grooves. 'Stoned Again' takes on Blur's droning Britpop quality, a heartfelt number with real soul tucked away in abundance. 'Not Man Enough' is a glam rock tune that will have you out of your seat dancing to its killer riffs." - RockRevolver.com "It’s not uncommon for current bands to mine the 60's for inspiration, but here, it’s like The Electric Stars have unearthed a full-blown musical from that era. In addition to catchy pop and glam rock tunes, there’s some blues, a gospel choir, and things get totally theatrical toward the end. It’s billed as 'Beautiful Music For Beautiful People', and at least 20 additional musicians or singers joined the five band members in creating it. Some listeners are likely to find this somewhat overblown and dated at times, but they have a way of making 60's style music fun." - Brokenheartedtoy.com  TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR EXCLUSIVE 2-FER OFFER! GET THIS AND THEIR “VELVET ELVIS” CD FOR ONLY $35! IF PAYING MY PAYPAL, YOU WILL BE REFUNDED ACCORDINGLY. IF PAYING BY CREDIT CARD, YOUR CARD WILL BE CHARGED THE 2-FER PRICE.  GREAT!!
