Planting the seed

“We think about it as a team,” she said. “Watching so many bands for so long and standing in the audience, I was like, ‘I want to try that.’ After playing by yourself for so many years and seeing what level you can reach with so many musicians coming in, you pretty much have to.

The Downers-Shake the Dead and Let the Downers Die


None December 14th, 2006

Sickboy Records

Utah's five-man The Downers play the psychedelic pop of Big Star and do it very well. This five-song sampler will trance you out like a Quaalude from 1974. It's good' Paul Burke's vocals are mesmerizing.
 
The Downers are not a throwback, but rather the group transports its genre into the future. "Shake the Dead and Let The Downers Die" is a quality album with feeling, pumping new blood into the ancient, stoned vibe' another flicker in the strobe. I dug it the most.
