Shake Some Action - Thirty Nine
James Hall's Shake Some Action is a too-well-kept Seattle secret. With echoes of The Feelies and R.E.M., the band flies the local flag for power pop and psychedelic rock. Their extensive catalog can be accessed via their webpage, but we are writing today to focus your attention on their brand spanking new album, Thirty Nine. The twelve tracks display plenty of muscle while not ignoring the pop end of the spectrum, resulting in a supercharged set of jangle, hooks, and rumbling bass and drums. We assure you that Thirty Nine is a good way to start the week.
