You've heard the saying, "don't throw out those bell bottoms from the 70's, they'll come back into style again someday"...
So too with trends in music. Many of the new bands are definitely styling some retro vibes.
Consider the Postmarks - a trio from Pompano Beach, Florida. Tim Yehezkely's lead vocals, and often her own fashion sense (see above photo) make me feel transported to the mod 60's. Jonathan Wilkins & Chris Moll (the other 2 of the trio) are multi-talented musicians, playing many instruments and arranging music with pure genius. Their track "My Lucky Charm" from Memoirs at the End of the World, is magically delicious! Groovy vibes made fresh with their Indie-pop sound.
Irish born songstress, Imelda May, is often described as "rockabilly" but the track "Johnny Got a Boom Boom" from her Love Tattoo album, has that 50's/60's jazz/beatnik sound. Not that I never was IN a beatnik club in the 60's, but I imagine it sounded like this! You can almost smell the clouds of cigarette smoke and hear the clink of bar glasses. The bass provides the perfect backdrop for Imelda's Kool-Kit delivery. She's outrageously sexy while exuding an untouchable class (think Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly) This track just settles in, forcing my foot to tap, and fingers to snap. Bongo bango, mingle mangle, ratatat, she's got all that.... (forgive my lame attempt at Beatnik poetry!)
