** Strawberry Smell -- featured on the soundtrack to the film "I'm Reed Fish"



With their second album, The Fall Parade, New Brunswick, NJ’s The Anderson Council pick up where they left off, driving home British Invasion-style hooks with power, style, and agility. From the opening barrage of “Beautiful” onward, every ringing chord, slamming drum fill, and booming bass run is brought to light by engineer Kurt Reil (The Gripweeds) and his House of Vibes cohorts. Appropriately, singer/songwriter Peter Horvath gleefully raids British vocal traditions (think Ray Davies through Paul Weller and Andy Partridge) the way Mick Jagger once raided our very own. Shuffle this strong lineup of tracks, and you won’t go wrong if you land on the propulsive “Friday’s Girl”, the stomping “Strawberry Smell”, or the loping “What Do You Know?”

The Nightfly

Very good, worth your time.
... What stands out after repeat listening is that the Anderson Council has a taste for a good hook: the circular guitar lines on “Partridge,” the excellent backup vocals and harmonies, and the trumpet on “Pretty People” (handled by guest musician Spiff Wiegand). Even the handclaps in “Meghan Allison” are spot-on. It’s also fun to trace the influences in the sound, even when the lyrics aren’t dropping obvious nods such as in “Pinkerton’s Assorted Colours” and “What Do You Know.” For example, the opening of “Mind Elevator” carries a whiff of the Stones, and the harmonies on “Partridge” make it sound like a lost Joe Jackson song.

Highlights are everywhere. “Meghan Allison,” “Archie’s Theme,” “Pinkerton,” and “Strawberry Smell” are great, bouncy pop songs, and the band just sounds like they had fun laying down the tracks – they don’t suffer from overproduction or excessive sweetening. You also get a sense of depth in the sound without it being overly intricate.
