Silver Tassels by Joe Turner & the Seven Levels

Alan Cross

I'm a sucker for this kind of psych-pop.  A couple of thoughts:

1. The first 14 seconds seem out of step with the rest of the song.  If I were a music director, I'd cut that and loop the rest of the intro for another 8 bars.  Better to get into the groove and vibe right away, you know?

2. The same applies for the first part of the instrumental bridge.  I know what you're going for, but it seems a little too different from everything else.  Maybe a different arrangement?  Change the solo?

3.A personal  preference: I was expecting some increased tension towards the end with a bigger crescendo and then denouement.  Instead the song lapsed back into the figure that I found out of place.

Great pacing in the intro - I like that I can't predict exactly what kind of melody I'm about to hear. I get a 60's vibe... until I hear the first verse. Great unpredictability! I would turn up the treble in your sound - I want to hear those awesome vocals more because I think the melody really works. The hazy guitar is creating an ambiance that I think you may want to tone down slightly. Overall, very cool vibe and unique sound. Everything is rather polished, and I love the summer feel I get here! Great work - I'm happy to post this on my blog (look out for it within the next week!).

Serviceable, catchy pop song, though doesn't stand out much from plenty of other songs by plenty of other bands.

"New Prescription" by Joe Turner & the Seven Levels

Eric Danton

Much catchier than the other "Girls Get Drugs for Free" tune -- love the robust lead guitar and the interplay throughout. Not much happens in the video, apart from the fairly literal prescription treatment.
