Popsicle





Do you long for the good ol' days of good time rock & roll music? You know, the days when you and your friends would grab your roller skates and head down to the local roller rink for a Friday night filled with free skates and trying to get to second base with whatever girl would let you. Well thankfully, you're not the only one. New York-based four-piece Diamond Nights too long for the good ol' days, but unlike your lazy ass, they've done something about it. The band's debut album, Popsicle, is a time warp that instantaneously transports its listeners to the year 1973. Like the illegitimate love child of T. Rex and Cheap Trick, Diamond Nights have filled Popsicle with sexy, guitar-based rock & roll music that will make your mamma scream and your girlfriend willing and ready for wild sexual experimentation. Wasting no time in getting started, album opener "Destination Diamonds" is a blistering, sexed-up, adrenalin-filled, falsetto-laced ode to the art of making out. Keeping it in high gear, the album moves quickly to the smooth and silky "Saturday Fantastic", followed shortly thereafter by the dark, creepy and slightly evil-sounding "Drip Drip" and the guitar jam freak-out "It's A Shokka". "The Girl's Attractive", with its choppy, muted guitars, sultry synth and haunting vocals, is easily one of the album's finest offerings. Singer Morgan Phalen's vocals move back and forth from the deep, crooning rasp of a predatorial sex beast to a soaring kick-to-the-nether-region-induced falsetto throughout the album, usually within the confines of the same song. The guitar work is methodical and precise, the rhythm section deadly. It's simple really. Diamond Nights rule. They'll kick your ass and steal your girlfriend and leave you begging for more before its all said and done. And if you decide to put Popsicle in the CD player at your next house party, beware. Something's going to get broken.
