Broken Record. Brad Marino
Enter Rum Bar Records. Relentlessly it keeps releasing singles, EPs and albums full of this kind of music. Having already written about 'C'Mon C'Mon C'Mon' recently (read on here: http://wonomagazine.blogspot.com/2019/01/cmon-cmon-cmon-brad-marino.html), this time I'm able to share with you my findings of Brad Marino's second single of his forthcoming album 'Extra Credit'.
There's no need to keep you any longer, this is just sheer fun. Brad Marino manages to capture decades in his song. The perfect pop of the 60s, the snottiness of punk and the directness of the 00s and 10s. With 2.26 minutes Broken record could have been a single in the 60s without any problem.
The guitars are strummed fast and muted, being released in the choruses. With little lead notes coming in later in the song, just before a short and sharp solo is allowed for. A Hammond joins in making the song just a little warmer, as does the lift up in the chord progression. Drums and bass deliciously tight. Add a melody that is instantly singable and Brad Marino has produced another hit (in another era unfortunately). He has me waiting full of expectation for Extra Credit. Keep it coming Rum Bar!
