The LOVE ME NOTS - Sucker
Formed in 2006, The Phoenix, AZ, quartet returns with its original lineup (Nicole Laurenne:vocals, organ - Michael Johnny Walker: guitar - Christina Nunez: vocals, bass -Jay Lien:drums) and the band once more delivers the goods on its latest release.
"Sucker" is 13 hard hitting, melodic, and catchy songs that will stay stuck in your head for months to come.
Recorded by Bob Hoag and mastered by the Detroit sound wizard JIM DIAMOND (White Stripes, Electric Six, Dirtbombs) the album is a real atomic blast of fuzzed out guitars and farfisa organ riffs ("No Myth", "Midnight") that will please every fan of The Lords of Altamont or The Fuzztones.
But the real treat on this record is almost hidden at the end of it: "Slip into the black" is an amazing Spector-esque pop song where Nicole's beautiful voice collides with a spooky organ and a very menacing guitar drenched in reverb.
