5.0 out of 5 stars If You Get A Chance To See These Guys Live, Do It!, December 26, 2009
This review is from: Friendly Fires (MP3 Music)
I was introduced to these guys by a friend on a music blog site I belong to. It took me awhile to catch on to them after I saw a few videos of theirs but once I got them, I was hooked. This is an extremely danceable album with very catchy rhythms, vocals and choruses. They remind me of an updated, more upbeat Talking Heads, which is quite a compliment in my book since I ADORE T. Heads. I listened to this album endlessly for quite some time. But the icing on the cake was catching them live at Coachella.

They are even more incredible than their album in a live setting. The songs take on a more muscular groove and these guys just flat out jam and dance their asses off live. I was quite impressed. The lead singer,Ed Mac, just by himself was fun to watch since he had this fun wiggling motion to his dancing. He was really into it. The percussionist also was quite lively to watch. From the very start of their set I was getting down to their brand of English white boy funk. I couldn't help it! So if you enjoy this album you will LOVE them in a live setting. They take their funky polyrhythms up to a whole other level. I was so glad I was able to see them. And Coachella Festival was the ideal setting out in the desert near Palm Springs. It's also a testament to any band when they can up the ante from their recorded material and enhance it. Definitely looking forward to their sophomore album since this is an incredible debut. Play that funky music white boys!
