PRODUCED & WRITTEN

"Put Your Foot In It" b​/​w "Magic Shadows" (EWR Digital 45 Single)

by The Electric Joy

Where I’m from, when you’ve acquitted yourself in a spectacular fashion – maybe you made a killer pot of red beans, or played a particularly nasty lick on your guitar – someone might pay you the highest of compliments and say that you’ve “put your foot in it!” And goddamn if The Electric Joy haven’t gone and done just that: They’ve put their foot in it in the BADDEST of ways with their new single “Put Your Foot in It,” a hand-clapping blast of psychedelic soul power. Pride is a sin, or so they say, but it ain’t pride when it’s true, and this tune is the outtasight gospel TRUTH. One bonafide hip-shaker would be enough – lord have mercy! – but good things sometimes come in pairs, and there are TWO pure jolts of groove for all y’all to dig here – “Magic Shadows” is the second half of this dynamite disc, and it’s a SMOKER of epic proportions. Dare to call it a B-side and it might smack you upside the head.
 
This time of year, we’re all searching for that particular platter that’ll get us through the summer, a jam that’ll do you right morning, noon and night. Well, look no further: This is IT, baby. Going to a dance party? Drop these on the hi-fi and watch the dance floor blow UP. Having a late-night rendezvous? These tracks will keep the house rockin’ ‘til the break of dawn. The Electric Joy is the group and they bring you EXACTLY what they advertise: ecstasy through voltage. So what are you waiting for? Turn it up and…

PUT YOUR FOOT IN IT!

ABOUT

Nashville based, New York born songwriter, musician and producer Reno Bo is currently at work on his second album. 2010 saw the release of and a tour in support of his debut album “Happenings And Other Things." Before moving to Nashville TN, Bo spent the previous several years on the road playing bass with fellow New Yorkers Albert Hammond Jr (The Strokes) and The Mooney Suzuki and as leader and songwriter of The Fame (whose name Lady Gaga is rumored to have used as inspiration for her album of the same moniker.) "Happenings And Other Things" is a soulful blend of Beatles / Big Star rock with shades of Tom Petty, Led Zeppelin and Neil Young. The album features the songs "There's A Light," "I See Stars," "Baby You're Not Feelin' Me Tonight" and "Shake Me Up" - the latter track produced by Fountains Of Wayne main man Adam Schlesinger (“Stacy’s Mom”, “That Thing You Do”.) His music has appeared on the hit ABC-TV show "Nashville" and in television commercials for Taco Bell, US Bank, Hardees, Kleenex, SAP, Toyota and Smokey The Bear. He’s been seen and heard on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and famed British radio DJ John Peel’s “Peel Sessions” in the UK. As a member of the Cabin Down Below band - a collection of NYC musicians who produce Petty Fest, a tribute to Tom Petty in cities all over the U.S. - Bo has performed on stage with Norah Jones, Jakob Dylan, member of Kings Of Leon, Ann Wilson of Heart, Butch Walker, and Donald Fagen among others. If you pause your DVD player quickly enough, he can be spotted playing with The Mooney Suzuki in DreamWorks Pictures war satire “Tropic Thunder,” starring Jack Black, Ben Stiller and Robert Downey Jr.
