Product Description

This NYC duo play an acerbic brand of guitar and drums trash pop. On "Ghosts", they take their T. Rex/Bill Murray inspired live show and add more texture and color with the inclusion of keys, synths, strings, harmony, and even bass (despite their mantra of "buck fass"). "If Jet and Hot Hot Heat had a drunken evening of throwdown sex, the bastard child would be The Gay Blades" - The Aquarian. RIYL: Black Lips, White Stripes, Two Gallants, Black Keys.

Biography

The Gay Blades are a two piece from New York City who play an acerbic brand of Trash Pop. What is Trash Pop, you ask? ... (more) Trash pop is what happens when two keenly observant wanna-be hipsters write and record songs the same pair couldn’t possibly pull off live, and make up for their missing bass player with consistently explosive performances and a heaping spoonful of swagger. ...

The Gay Blades have an original sound in a way that I haven't heard in a long time. Each track crackles with energy, enthusiasm, and tongue-in-cheek wit. I expected to hate them, but this is easily one of the year's best albums.

...is how The Gay Blades describe themselves. I'm not sure exactly what "trash pop" is, but I know this album is chock-full of great, sing-along tunes from cover to cover.

I bought it on a whim after randomly hearing "O Shot" on the radio, and youtube-ing the music video. They seemed fun, energetic, and different from your average rock/pop band. The album itself starts off with this single, and moves into some very different-sounding songs. I was a bit turned-off at first, expecting the songs to sound a lot like this single, but found myself coming back again and again to the point where I listen to and sing-along with every song on the album.

I highly recommend this album to anyone who enjoys music filled with soul. Even though they're only a guitar and drums, they fill the void with an energy and soul unparalleled in most modern groups. So stop reading and buy the album already!

This is absolutely one of my all time favorite albums. I saw them perform a lot of this album at a really small venue in Philly in 2009 and was hooked (they opened for electric 6). The guys were super cool when we talked with them after the show, they even gave me and my boyfriend completely random but awesome nicknames. We both bought the CD and it's a constant on all our best playlists. I honestly love every song on this album and they get stuck in my head for days after I listen to it. My favorite tracks are O Shot, Hey She Say, and NHDN...but they really are ALL awesome.

I'm so sad to hear they broke up at the end of 2013.
