"Yoga With Mona" by Hyperbolium on

Retro 60's garage from France, May 5, 2011

This review is from: Yoga With Mona (Audio CD)
For their second album (their debut was 2009's Time Machine), this French quintet continues to create garage and beat sounds that echo the R&B of the Animals and Small Faces and revivalists like the Miracle Workers, Fuzztones, Lyres and Chesterfield Kings. The driving bass, reverbed guitars, hard-blown harmonica and whining organ will be familiar to fans of the Nuggets/Pebbles/Boulders series, even without the scratchy patina of original 45s. You pretty much know what you're getting when there's a pentagonal Vox Phantom guitar pictured on the album sleeve and the band has the taste and knowledge to cover the Gentlemen's Texas punk classic "It's a Crying Shame." The Norvins make good their vintage equipment and give you the soundtrack for the hottest yoga session of the year. 3-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings. [©2011 hyperbolium dot com]
