Attentive readers may recall that, back in 2017, I raved about the eponymous debut album by Jersey boys Mike Daly and the Planets, which featured this haunting love ballad.
Great stuff, obviously, and as you can hear, to paraphrase Jack Nicholson's famous description of Bob Dylan, these guys are a riot.
Now the band has a new album...
....which, like the debut, is guitar-driven power pop and general rock-and-roll of a very high order indeed. Only this time, improbably enough, even more assured, melodic and hilarious.
Exhibit A: The kick-ass opening track, "Slack."
I mean "Comfy in my jammies, polishing my Grammys" -- that's freaking genius.
Oh, and Mike -- thanks again for the t-shirt. I shall continue to wear it proudly.
Meanwhile, you can find out more about the band, and -- more importantly, acquire the new record -- over HERE.
