|Welcome to the Club, The TriSonics
Raucous Records, 2007
The sign on the club door says "rock'n'roll tonight" and if you don't like it, come back tomorrow for a country night, right? Wrong. Who says a modern day rock'n'roll band can't sound like tomorrow's country music or that an indie pop band can't swing? Who says a trio from Germany can't play Americana?
The TriSonics actually thrive on crossing genre borders. Listen to their second album "Welcome to the Club" and you'll find Rockabilly ("These Walls"), Country (the title track), Swing ("Should've Known Better"), and even a homage to Britpop ("Lyia") as well as a cover of a Blondie hit ("Call Me") from 1980. You can also hear a real smoocher ("I Believe in Love"), a bombastic bit of jungle music ("Ooh I Like That Voodoo"), a track that opens with the sound of a shovel hitting dirt ("Digging a Hole"), a ballad ("In My Arms") as well as a song with a grand gypsy finale. And the final track manages to pull all these elements into one song.
The TriSonics teamed up with producer Michael Heilrath (Couch) and some of the best musicians in Munich to put a record together that's as multi-flavored as the show schedule at your favourite local live dive and still keeps it all together. The only thing that's missing is the guy selling beer and a wc. So, welcome to the club!
