Floor It!

Das zweite full-length Album der “Texas Boogie Band”, einem Kollektiv aus fünf Freunden. Begnadenten Studiomusikern, die schon mit Legenden wie Kris Kristofferson, George Strait und Joe Ely auf einer Bühne standen/im Studio waren. Aufgenommen in den EchoLab Studios in Denton, Texas mit Produzent Matt Pence. Ein buntes Stil-Potpourri.

Pop on Floor It!!!, the new and second full-length effort from the Texas Gentlemen, and prepare your eardrums to be hit with everything from woozy, brass-fueled Dixieland-style jazz ('Veal Cutlass'), to slinky, chicken-scratch country funk ('Bare Maximum') to lushly orchestrated pop-soul balladry ('Ain't Nothin' New')'and that's all in just the first 10 minutes of play time. While the Gentlemen's sound is clearly steeped in the classic roots, rock and pop music of the '60s and '70s, there's a dreamy (the lilting 'Sing Me to Sleep'), spacey ('Skyway Streetcar') and occasionally progressive ('Dark at the End of the Tunnel') element to what they do that seems to detach the music from belonging to any particular place and time. Add in elements of funk, soul, country, r&b, southern rock, gospel and essentially any other style that catches their musically omnivorous ears; an expansive and detailed approach to arrangement that sees the songs adorned with all manner of horns, strings and heavenly background vocals ('Hard Road') and you have a collection of tunes that is more than just a mere album. Rather, Floor It!!! is a rich and righteous ride.
