It's not too often that you hear something raw with this much class. I refer to 42 Seconds Later, a trio from Wisconsin that seems to take a lot of their influence from vintage bands as well as a little Mod/Punk.
The vocals are stunning ... Shari puts a lot of heart into what she's singing. I'm also impressed by the instrumental ability that shines through in her fat bass lines. The guitar is equally as fascinating in that very few effects are used to muck up the warm, crunchy sound brought out naturally by Matt's playing. The whole sound would be incomplete without Dave's almost tribal rhythms. As a whole this band meshes beautifully and certainly puts out the good stuff ... not just snakes and sparklers.
The Rock And/Or Roll EP had all the stops, stunts and illiterate BS removed ... leaving nothing but solid Rock and Roll to please the palette. I give 42 Seconds Later 4 out of 5 stars!
