Rating:8.5/10


The Mooney Suzuki are a New York based band who play an enthralling mix of feedback driven rock Ďní roll with soulful RíníB. They tout themselves as the Ďhardest working band in show businessí and whether such claims are true or not, they seemingly have been touring for the last two years and the results show in their second album, Electric Sweat. As their press releases states, itís "bristling with 10 sweat-drenched slabs of electrocuted rhythm & blues" and thanks to the more powerful production of producer Jim Diamond, is an improvement on their well-received debut, People Get Ready. I havenít seen The Mooney Suzuki live but if Electric Sweat is any indication than they would have to be one of the most exciting rock and roll bands currently playing.
