CD Review – Levee Town – Pages of Paperwork
Pages of Paperwork from Kansas City quartet Levee Town sounds more like it came from the UK rather than the heartland. The fourteen song set is a fresh mix of British invasion, surf rock, classic blues sensibility and rockabilly bravado. A band with three lead vocalists is a rare thing and Levee Town uses them with great effect sporting tight harmonies and fresh melodies, often doubling the vocal lines with the fine harmonica from Jim Meade or Brandon Hudspeth‘s fiery lead guitar. Bassist Jacque Garoutte gives gutsy vocals while drummer Jan Faircloth holds them all together with his snappy grooves. Each track has ear catching hooks and clever lyrics, drawing in the listener with ease. Standouts tracks, “Lowdown,” ”Hurt But Strong,” and “The Ring,” are radio ready.
Infectious new music from a hard working Midwestern band who deserve attention.
