SUGAR & THE HI-LOWS // HIGH ROLLER [READY SET RECORDS]

Album starts with honky tonkin’, swingin rock n’ roll and moves gradually into more modern hipster pop and eventually into some gospel-y/soul-y tunes–it kind of runs the gamut.  Male and female vocals reminiscent of Shovels & Rope.  Some songs with far more modern guitar tones and vocals, all rooted, though, in their rock n’ roll core.  Track 2 is damn near a modern pop-rock song, track 3 is heavily White-Stripes-influenced, and 4 sounds like TOPS.

RIYL: Shovels & Rope, First Aid Kid, Sonny & The Sunsets, White Stripes, TOPS  |  PLAY: 1, 2, 3, 4, the rest are decent, too  | FCC: none
