Sing Me a Song
Unfortunately too often lumped together with other groups under the rubric of pop-punk, the Hurricane Lamps share little with such bands. Instead, they hearken back to the classic power pop of the Plimsouls and the dB’s, benefiting from a sound and style that borrows equally from late Sixties acts such as the Who, Small Faces and the Kinks, and early Nineties artists like Superchunk. The Hurricane Lamps channel these disparate elements into a not unpleasant sound. Benefiting from a much better and cleaner production that allows Eric Tischler’s guitar work to soar all over the album, the Hurricane Lamps make a compelling case that there is still life and energy to be drawn from the sounds of the sixties.
