This album is a MUST HAVE for every power pop/ Rickenbacker drenched jangle pop fan; listen to the soundbites, then buy it!! This 4th studio album by Seattle’s Shake Some Action! has echoes of 1964-65 era Byrds & Beatles (esp. tracks 5 & 12 reminiscent of Love me Do, Ticket to Ride) mixed w/Spongetones, Teenage Fanclub, Hoodoo Gurus & Flamin’ Groovies (from their Shake Some Action period – where this band took their name). The melodic hooks & vocal harmonies are fabulous. Recorded & produced by the band’s own native Australian James Hall, he supposedly recorded 20 song ideas the day he first plugged in his Rickenbacker, & spent the next year working on them; here are the 14 best surviving songs (42 minutes of jangle bliss!). My favorite album of 2013.
