ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Smash Palace returns with their seventh CD (titled “7″) , that’s filled with 11 rock n roll tracks designed to be your soundtrack for the summer of 2010. The Butler brothers do what they do best… 60′s jangle pop, 70′s rock swagger, 80′s power pop , 90′s Brit pop all rolled into a contemporary style that’s all their own. It’s like listening to songs you know but haven’t heard before. If this is your first Smash Palace listening experience, you’ve picked the right place to start because the band just keeps getting better with each release. Recorded on 16 track tape, the band decided to forego computer based recording and cut the tracks with little alteration to the sounds being created. It’s the sound of a band that’s the real deal; a dedicated band that’s paid its dues and continues to create some of the best melodic rock n roll you’ll ever hear. “7” gives you the The Butlers were first discovered by Hilly Kristal at CBGB’s then signed to Columbia Records. The band then moved on to Epic Records and now records for Zip Records. They were rediscovered by label president Art Herman after playing a show at the Cavern Club in Liver- pool, 2005. This is the bands third CD release for Zip Records.

POWER POP IS ALIVE AND WELL IN NEW JERSEY!
Smash Palace's latest disc - entitled "7" - is hands down their strongest disc to date. This veteran power pop quartet is cranking out radio-friendly tunes on the strength of their talent - no luck is required to enjoy eleven more tracks from a group that draws references from the rock and pop archives of prior decades. When they press on the accelerator ("Win It All," "How Can You Say"), Smash Palace blends Knack, Rubinoos and Plimsouls power pop crunch and melody. When they slow things down ("Holding Out For You," "Bridge of Sighs," "Secret Life"), their material takes on a very strong Beatlesque flavor. Like their fellow New Jersey band the Grip Weeds (but without the psychedelic flourishes), Smash Palace very capably crafts classic references into refreshing original pop-rock songs. "7" - and the band's six preceding albums - all deserve the undivided attention of power pop music fans everywhere!
