ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The Return of Rock!" Music presses recently tried to elevate garage-rock bands to headliner status by proclaiming that they were going to save the rock genre. They all came . . . and they all went. The problem? Songs. Or more specifically: the art of songwriting. Here is where Frank Enea's Makeshift Days comes in. From the opening acoustic intro of "Falling Out Of Bed" to the final track "Holding Back" (featured on the NBC hit show, "Ed"), the listener is reminded of artists like the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Tom Waits, Coldplay and Radiohead. One thing these masters all have in common is their devotion and artistry to songwriting. While they have all varied musical styles they all have the drive and focus for each and every individual song they write, craft and record. Oh, and one more thing they all have in common: the live performances.

The one constant of lasting rock acts are the albums they produce AND their live shows which add a new layer of energy to the songs. Frank Enea on vocals and guitar, Jon Ellner on guitar and vocals, Paul Enea on drums, Alex Morell on bass, Peter Nebauer on keyboards. Frank Enea and Palace Laundry have recorded a soulful and melody driven album. Hear them, experience them. "The Return of Songwriting" is here. Again.

Ian Mersy - Musician, London

Brilliant, very well done!
Finally an American band that doesn't play up to the lame mainstream garage rock genre. From top to bottom this is a brilliant collection of well written and skilfully preformed songs. This is like one of those CDs you buy just to check out & turns out to be a gem. I believe Ive found my favorite new band! Well done.

Wow!
I cannot say much more than "wow! " I never expected such solid music from an Indie label...In my country we are always looking to see new groups, and are always enamored with music from England and America because the talent is so great. I have been working in record companies here and have been out of work for months, so I have time to really listen to music as oppossed to it being the soundtrack to my crazy life. I have fallen in love with "Ride"...this song gets me as excited as I was when I first heard "Karma Police" by Radiohead...I've been waiting for a CD to move me from the first song to the last...this feels like a real "album". Warm sounds throughout...great guitar work, and truly mesmerising melodies...the lyrics are poetic and purely captivating... I am also stuck on "fascination" and it will be a while until I will get this one out of my head...and surely, that is fine by me!

I really enjoyed the music, brilliant and exceptional work.
songs are fantastic and guitar-istry reminds me of layering techniques of Stones (from all eras) and Jimmy Page, Johnny Marr, great slide solo on "Star". His vocal style is Jagger with the smoothness of Hutchence and Bowie. Also writing technique of Lennon/McCartney with a Stones lyrical edge.
and manages to pull off a modern sound. Drumming, bass are well thought out also. Purchase you will be suprised.

An Impassioned and Scrupulous Record
D. H. Spider here. I didn't see all these boxes on top, but I hope I've filled them out correctly now. I offered my review about 20 minutes ago!

Thanks

"Makeshift Days" ...Everyday!
I was in Tower Records in NYC and listened to your CD...but didn't get the chance to buy it because they were out of stock...so I bought it on CDBABY. I have to say this is one of my favorite cd's in a long time. Right now I'm playing three cd's in heavy rotation.
Annie Lennox's "Bare", Train's "My Private Nation "and your CD "Makeshift Days'.... I love "Sad Day" , my grilfriend prefers "In all Honesty"...she thinks its funny...but I actually think "Fascination" is the best song on your CD...I wish you guys the best...I will check your website for live dates every week or so hoping to catch you live very soon...Thanks ...Jared

This is the bee's knees and nothing comes close!
To do justice to this fine album I would need to rate it 100 stars, not merely five! To listen to this record with headphones ('ear goggles' as Hendrix termed them!) on and the volume up is, in my view, very close to being in the after-world with its attendant harmony and bliss. A lot of work has gone into this recording and it shows clearly. Because lyrically and musically it provokes questions and the listener's own internal dialogue, like Sgt. Peppers did, it has that classic ethereal sheen upon it. We are lucky to have a chap like Frank Enea.

with Frank Enea, rock is reestablished in america
the cd is one of the most phenomenal releases in the post modern area. it's rock at its finest! apparently americans have forgotten that rock's birth place is america with all the mass produced, assembly line, bubble-gum, boy and girl bands that are churned out and mercilessly forced-fed to the public by money-grubbing,untalented music producers. atleast Frank Enea offers hope that rock in america will be revitalized and reestablished in rock's homeland. God bless america!

Great Music is Back
This CD is just great!
Music has finally gotten to a point where I have faith in the music business...it reminds me of the period in music where bands wrote great albums, had concerts, and truly played their instruments without the aid of Pro Tools and computers...This is the album all
Coldplay fans will listen to when all they need to move on to bigger and better things...Great music, driving drums and ethereal sounds
will fill you with total delight!
