Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

THE LANSING UNIONIZED VAUDEVILLE SPECTACLE

Extra! Extra!

2012-12-03

Extra! Extra! is the first release from The Lansing Unionized Vaudeville Spectacle. The troupe creates vaudeville Americana using such instruments as washboard, kazoo, banjo, accordion, and megaphone. The music is expressive, often with Michigan-centric lyrics. The band seems to have a "let's just have a good time" attitude and I'll bet they're a blast to see perform live. I like just about everything about this release....the musicianship and instrumentation, the lyrics and the vocals. The only downside is the uneven mix. Rebecca Ruth
