DAPTONE ROCK

I don't follow the rock magazines, and I often have a hard time buying into the recommendations of strangers regardless. There's just too much hype, spread way too fast by people without a decent comprehension of what music has been done before and making comparisons to other bands that aren't all that accurate. But when I get a heads up from my dear friend Jacqui Ramirez, someone I used to do a fanzine with, someone I've known long enough that it was her that turned me on to Richard Hell way back in the day, when I get a heads up from her, you better believe I'm listening. And when she suggests that I listen without watching a video first, I do. A recommendation the old fashioned way, word of mouth. So it is that I am apparently late to this party, but I guarantee you, the last beer in the fridge still isn't safe.

Mystery Lights are the first rock 'n' roll band to be released on Daptone's new imprint label Wick. They recorded in Daptone's studio, so you know it went through a quality filter without being subjected to an intentionally lo-fi-posing-as-garage type mix. This could get good.
