1-800-BAND - Diver Blue ep (2014, Almost Ready) - a brief overview
1-800-BAND's crisp re-synthesis of the Cars, Cheap Trick and Pointed Sticks, couched in a streamlined, 21st century delivery mechanism? Not me anyway. Lots of whirring keyboards all over this one, but the center stage on Diver Blue is occupied by a damn near-addictive stash of hooks. The title track all but sells itself, and can be experienced on the 1-800's Soundcloud page. Diver Blue can be had on wax direct from Almost Ready and in ones and zeroes via iTunes, Emusic and Amazon.
