"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!
- Gabe Soria
Lessons From A Shooting Star is the new album from Nashville based, New York born songwriter, musician and producer Reno Bo. 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.)
Years later, those early influences are on full display with Lessons From a Shooting Star, an album that mixes the hooks and harmonies of classic pop music with the size, sweep and swagger of rock & roll. It's Bo's second solo record, with the multi-instrumentalist handling virtually every job — from the songwriting to the bass guitar to the vocals to the production — himself. For a musician who'd spent the past decade touring the world as a member of other people's bands, Lessons From a Shooting Star was a chance to focus inward. It was a chance to make music that was completely his.
Lessons From a Shooting Star may be a modern album, but its basic ingredients — jangling electric guitar, B3 organ, harmonies, double-tracked melodies, Farfisa — cook up a sound that's nostalgic, too. “The Brighter Side," a power-pop track co-written with Brendan Benson, could've been tracked at Ardent Studios during the 1970s, rather than Bo's own Nashville apartment during the mid-2010s. A similar vibe anchors songs like "How Do You Do, which he recorded with guitarist Sadler Vaden, the only other musician to make it onto the album. With its influences proudly worn on its sleeve, Lessons From a Shooting Star nods to the music that shaped Bo's life back in New York while still pushing forward to something new. Looks like the guy has learned his lessons well.
