Rhyme and Treason (Digital)$11.99
"Rhyme and Treason" isn't just the almost-clever, rent-a-pun name of the band's third album - it's that guitar-drenched, melody-rich, rhythm-chunky place where rock and roll still reaches you.
High quality 320 mbps MP3s
10 fully mastered tracks
Goes great with various ales, finger foods, vehicle excursions and headphone-driven "alone" time
Flown-in fresh from the Island of Groove
Sometimes you just feel like chunking it up with a kiss of funk...but not so much, of course. Leave the real funk to the James Browns and George Clintons of the world. But maybe just a enough to get that neck bending in a new direction for a few minutes. But not so much.
Sometimes you feel like a punk and have the deep need to bang out stuff on your guitar. Not so much as to just make noises for noise's sake, but just enough to throw around a little attitude and create a place for a good raspy rock voice to play.
Sometimes you just feel like breaking out a few strings and woodwinds, like the "fancy pants" crowd does - but not so much, of course. Rock and roll is just........well, rock and roll, after all. But maybe just enough to spoon on some texture, a different feel, enough to get some cerebrums churning. But not so much.
Sometimes you just feel like jumping out of that 4/4 box, comfy and cozy as it might be. Not so much as to sound like you're trying too hard to be smart, but just enough to keep ears perked and minds enticed.
Sometimes you feel like espresso while gazing out on the Mediterranean. Sometimes you wish you could play that bass like at Hitsville, USA. Sometimes you gotta metal it up, epic-style.
Every time, however - without fail - it's about nourishing that rock and roll soul.
