Morningwood – Sugarbaby EP
August 14, 2008
More savvy, sexy dance-ready pop rock from Brooklyn based Morningwood, their first release since their eponymous debut in 2006. The four tracks included on Sugarbaby are all worthy tracks, which bodes well for their forthcoming followup LP, due, well, I’m not sure when, but soon, I hope. The highlights are the title track, natch, and the closing “Best Of Me,” and all the songs are full on rockers, with blazing, muscular guitars and lead singer Chantal’s effortlessly sexy vocals at the forefront. There’s nothing here I liked quite as much as “Jetsetter,” which initially sold me on the band, but it’s clear from this EP that they haven’t lost their knack for making infectious pop music. Bring on the LP!
P.S. If you can see this band live, by all means, do so. They’re a ton o’ fun.
