Red Bedroom





NYC residents should not be unfamiliar with The Fever, one of the most potent bands to be born from the cityís rock underbelly in recent memory. It was their fiery live shows that first added this quartet to the annals of local lore and attracted the keen eyes and ears of our friends at Kemado records (home to hipster darlings Elefant), who quickly snatched them up. Last summer saw the almost simultaneous release of the bandís debut commercial release, the Pink On Pink EP, and the Vice records homage to the 1978 compilation No New York, appropriately titled Yes New York. Both of these releases featured the infectious sounds of the should-have-been-a-huge-smash song ìLadyfingersî and proved that The Fever had what it takes to capture their intense live show on tape (or binary code, but probably tape). With Red Bedroom, The Fever have taken their sound (described as the Gun Club in a knife fight with Devo) to the next level, confirming my deepest hopes that they'd be capable of cranking out a full album of great songs. ìGray Ghostî is the albumís first single and now that the format is finally starting to swing back towards playing great music once again, thereís no telling how far it can go.
