Southern fried, paisley jangle pop
From the Pop Gods on Mount Jangle directly to you comes Deluxe Leisure King: a two guitar, bass, and drums combo that's been compared to the Windbreakers, The db's and early REM and described as gutsy, rootsy, and wonderfully out of step. The end result is original tunes heavy on the hooks with a maximum dose of well thought out melody.
"...This is a solid album from start to finish, with lots of chiming guitars ... and a very strong likeness to the work of the mid-90s pop band Javelin Boot. That makes this one a keeper!" -- Eric Soreneson, Fufkin.com
"Fans of REM...early Elvis Costello, the Byrds, Badfinger...should love this group. There should always be a place for this kind of basic, never too serious rock/pop." -- Jess Marich, Shake Magazine
"Lots to like on the CD." -- Lee Elliot, anotherplanet.ca
"..think of early REM with the occasional 12 string nod to the Byrds." --Lawrence Specker, the Mobile Register
"I really enjoyed the disc from start to finish. Definitely, a great collection of jangle guitar pop tunes very, very enjoyable...Congrats for the
melodic sense." --Carlos Quintino, BangBang Radio
