"Gonna Happen To You" CD
At Any Speed

Happen To You is a fantastic album. Featuring ex-members of Thin
White Rope, Warm Wires, and Game Theory, among
others, this is a fun, rockin' album that is sure to get your tapping
your feet - and banging your head.
With a special creative spark and a fantastically vibrant singer,
this is an outrageous, yet completely accessible album.
Throughout these eleven songs, it's clear that The Graves Brothers
Deluxe are having fun - and who can blame them? This music
is all about fun!
Via spastic, offbeat guitar burblings and funky vocals, the band
has a power to really capture the listener. Though there's a
definite sense that this would work best in a live setting, the
recorded effort is still worth your attention. "Electrical,"
for example, is a moody, yet exciting track with an irresistible
melody that will get you humming along in no time. It even
boasts some well-used trumpet (my favourite instrument, by the way) in
the background. "Ashtray Heights," meanwhile, is a
funky tune with a nice melody and a bouncy (yet not bubbly) sound that
will get you jumping around in no time.
As the debut release for the Unsafe at Any Speed label, this is a
fantastic beginning. Things bode well for both the label and the
band in the future.
I want more. Please.
