REVIEW: The Crush - Future Blimps
Future Blimps starts out with the sneering garage rock of "Never Gonna Stop" -- hooks and attitude in perfect measure. "Around" brings the power pop jangle to the fore. The itinerary leads back to the garage with chunky riffs on "Better and Better", then closes with the buoyant power pop of "It's Love" and "Nothing to Lose". The Crush has a lot of talent and a knack for writing entertaining songs. And you have to love their pricing strategy: Five songs for three dollars undercuts the competition (OK, maybe having a dog for a manager isn't the right strategy going forward). We hope they make it up on volume -- give them a hand!
