The Vodka Talking and the Gin Listening
Life is Still Sweet a 2000 EP from New York band White Hassle has long been a favourite of mine and has previously featured on CCM to considerable indifference.
Therefore I couldn't resist the opportunity , in the splendid Elvis Shakespeare shop on Edinburgh's Leith Walk, to pick up their 2005 album Your Language from our friends at Fargo Records.
I would put this one down as average , certainly not in the same league as Life is Still Sweet. These two songs are not too bad though.
Described in the Houston Chronicle as stripped down noisy blues-soaked rock.
To me it can come across a wee bit quirky in places and puts me in mind of the likes of They Might be Giants and Jonathan Richman
