ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The long awaited third album from Baltimore's the Jennifers is finally here, and the reviews are great:

"Amplifier readers will undoubtedly love this album. Guitarist and songwriter John Irvine shares not just Andy Partridge's elastic vocal technique, but a similar whimsical pop aesthetic, making music that is not slavish to, but rather reminiscent of, or inspired by XTC's. The Jennifers third long-player is indebted further to the jangly, revisionist 60's weirdness of The Soft Boys (whose sparkling "Queen of Eyes" is covered faithfully here), but with a penchant for leaning on arrangements favoring clean, surfy guitar sounds and basement production techniques that posits it as more American indie than Euro wannabe. Funny at times - "Starfleet Academy" achieves the rare balance of being nerdy and muscular at the same time - the band benefits from not taking itself too seriously, yet also chafes at the idea of turning itself into a bunch of self-deprecating jokesters. Beneath the chimey pop surface bubbles a stream of genuine guitar god agility, as the final one-two punch of "Lion in Winter" and "Saturday" proves, but instead of taking off on extended upper fret jams, Irvine and second guitarist Joe Stone create tension and release out of languid, relaxed interplay." ~ Larry O. Dean --http://amplifiermagazine.com/reviews/cds/the_jennifers_cd.php

"Best album of 2007? I recognize that it's early in the year but I'm going to call it now: The Jennifers' latest disc, Colors From the Future. Shades of R.E.M., the Soft Boys, the Feelies, Television, even a bit of Echo and the Bunnymen. It's all good, friends, and Colors From the Future gets better every time around the track. In some ways it reminds me of Spalding Gray's Swimming in Cambodia when he writes about searching for the perfect moment. Only with Colors From the Future that perfect moment never seems to be in the same place twice." --http://www.gometric.typepad.com/

"The Jennifers' new album, Colors From the Future contains bright and citrusy pop as reminiscent of the flowery tang of oranges and lemons as it is of Oranges and Lemons. Influenced by new-wave guitar-based songwriters like Robyn Hitchcock, Elvis Costello, XTC, and Television - Colors From the Future shares a melody-centric approach with those early not-quite-new-wave bands, as well as a palette of clean, bell-like instrumentation. But where Television might be a hard sell as background music for a summer barbecue, Colors' songs feel run-through-the-sprinkler cheerful while still retaining art-rock smarts." --http://citypaper.com/music/review.asp?rid=11440

Blues Bunny

Catchy and clever guitar pop.
This Baltimore band has a catchy guitar pop sound with some clever lyrics. The style is part British invasion, and part new wave influenced pop of the type Elvis Costello used to produce at his peak. Undoubted highlights are the opening track “Mrs Gray”, about Dorian’s other half and her picture-perfect looks; and “Fell in a Hole”, a tribute to the Mersey Sound of the 60’s.
