Take Me to the West Coast
Infectious power pop you can dance to has never sounded better than on Jeff Bruckner's debut album, "Take Me To The West Coast." The young, sweater-vest sporting, floppy-hair-head-bopper packs a poppy crunch into his tales of heartache and desire. Not to be outdone by wicked guitar work courtesy of Stephen Butler (Smash Palace) and a strong back beat provided by Anthony Bezich (Mezzrow),Bruckner's strengths lie in his quirky storytelling and antihero escapades as showcased in tracks, "Chicago," "Not Feelin' It," and "Murdering Man." For the rock clubbers out there, "Quarterback Lover" and "I Never" provide chanting anthems you can move your feet to. And on "Point Of View" and "Envy Of All Our Friends" Bruckner demonstrates his acoustic flair he patented during his stint in Los Angeles. You'll be hooked on Bruckner's hooks after one listen, as this is truly an album that can be appreciated by all.
