How To Choose A Sweetheart
 
How To Choose A Sweetheart Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $13.00
Artist: Peter & The Penguins
 
 
Quantity:
 
WOW!!!!! Fans of Merseybeat, The Beatles, The Fore, The Offbeat, and Tony Cox alert! Very, very cool new heavily Mersey-inspired release from this band from Norway! Don't believe us? Well then we'll leave it to our friend Alan Haber (a guy who knows a thing or thousand about great pop) to hip you to them! "They usher in the new beat(le-esque) era, and are the latest, fab stewards of the good ship Beatle-esque to steer the ears of melodic pop fans and denizens of the beat music era to a rousing chorus of yeah, yeah, yeahs. A round of hearty handclaps, then, for these boys from Norway. Prepare to get Penguin-ized! 'There's No Living Here Without You' takes its cues from a decidedly McCartney-ized reservoir of melodic structure, a la Macca's 'My Brave Face' (the infectious bass line is pure, Paul). Not only is the basic structure of the infectious, mid-tempo popper 'If You Wanna Leave Me for Somebody New' basically Beatle-esque (dig the instrumental section piano line for a warm nod back to early Fabs), the song is a veritable 60's nod (don't miss the delectable Mamas and Papas moment in the middle-eight). For more 60's pleasure, the marvelous 'Barefoot' wears its Beach Boys worship on its intensely-melodic sleeve, no more so than during its gorgeous, opening a cappella section. A decidedly Beatle-esque, early era-style bopper. A hook-heavy chorus and a thumping bass, not to mention Harrison-esque DNA dripping from the lead guitar lines, fuel the upbeat 'She Took Me By Surprise.' The mid-tempo toe-tapper 'Sweetheart' sports a particularly catchy chorus with great harmonies. Mixed in with the group's ace originals is a nifty cover that showcase the boys' ability to bring contemporary life to the rich history of 60's musical versatility. They remold Lavern Baker's stalwart 'Bumble Bee' as a rocking Shadows workout played with a cowboy's sensibility. And check out the supremely infectious, vote-for-Ringo manifesto 'There Goes Pete Best,'! There's no doubt about it: Peter and the Penguins is the Beatle-esque 'it' band of the moment. If Beatle-esque and beat pop are your game, then you're in for a great time, and you can't beat that!" - Alan Haber Showing great taste, there's also a great cover of The Spongetones' "Here I Go Again"! Need we say more? GREAT!!!!
